Surety Issues

Almost all California public construction projects require that prime contractors have performance and payment bonds to ensure that they meet their contractual obligation and pay their subcontractors and suppliers. Last & Faoro is a San Mateo, California, based construction law firm with a great deal of experience handling a wide variety of performance and payment bond disputes.

Contact our law firm today to learn more about how we can help with surety issues and other construction law matters.

What Type Of Surety Or Bonding Issue Is Involved In Your Case?

Our construction law attorneys have the experience to review the General Indemnity Agreement (GIA) that is a prerequisite to the issuance of a bond by a surety company. Since the GIA gives the surety legal authority to collect from the principal in the event of a default on the surety bond, it is important to be aware of such obligations.

Our lawyers are familiar with the typical terms and conditions contained in the GIA and the issues that may develop in relation to those provisions. Our firm also handles matters related to the federal Miller Act bond for clients involved with federal government building contracts.

In addition, our attorneys regularly represent prime contractors, subcontractors, and owners in construction disputes emanating from bid bonds disputes, payment bond claims, and performance bond claims.
