Protecting Your Right to Payment: Legal Tools That Help Contractors Get Their Money

When: 03/28/2018
Speaker: Jonathan T. Elder
Where: Woburn, MA

Hinckley Allen Partner Jon Elder will be presenting at the Professional Development Seminar Series for the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., Massachusetts Chapter, in March. Jon will discuss practical solutions to every day challenges contractors face.

In an ideal world, getting paid on a construction project would be as simple as submitting a requisition, confirming the work is complete, and receiving your check within the allotted time established in the contract. In the real world, payment is all-too-often complicated by disputes or other issues that keep contractors from receiving their money in full and on-time. This seminar will cover a wide range of available contractual and legal tools, including:

  • Mechanic’s liens
  • Payment bonds
  • Attachment actions
  • The state Prompt Payment Act
  • Other potential contracted-based rights
