Using a Construction Attorney to Start a Construction Business


With the construction industry being so strong in the state of Arizona, you might have thought about starting your own construction company.

The good news is, it doesn’t look like the construction industry will be slowing down anytime soon. So, what are the steps to take when starting a construction business and how can using an attorney who is familiar with Arizona construction law be beneficial?

Why Use a Construction Attorney?

First things first, consult with a construction attorney so that you know what to expect on your journey. They will be there to help you with obtaining a license, which will be needed for a successful and legal construction company.

Your attorney will help you fill out the needed application with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors. On top of the application, the right construction attorney will help you prepare for the business management exam that you will need to pass to obtain a license. 

During this exam, you will be tested on your knowledge of state and federal laws along with the management of construction projects and business financial management. 

Since this can all be overwhelming and confusing to any first-timers, working with an experienced construction attorney will give you the peace of mind that you are doing everything right when starting your construction business. 

After obtaining your license, your attorney can help you get set-up with the Arizona Corporation Commission to assist in getting additional local permits and licenses that may be required. 

The Benefits of Working with a Construction Attorney

Of course, there are always benefits when working with an attorney. But a construction attorney will be needed to help you deal with all of the things that may be thrown your way when starting a construction company.

Since you may not be well-versed with Arizona construction law, hire a professional to handle any legal disputes, keep your business and license protected, and stay in good standing with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors.

When issues do come up (and they might from time to time), you can use the knowledge of a construction attorney to be on your side when dealing with breach of contracts or liability issues.
