The Indiana construction law attorneys at Mitchell Hurst Dick & McNelis, LLP, have extensive experience representing commercial real estate owners, subcontractors and material suppliers with construction contracts and construction disputes.

Among the services the firm provides are legal counsel and courtroom representation regarding mechanic’s lien rights and claims in Indiana. Mechanic’s lien rights are rights accorded by specific Indiana state statutes to providers of construction services, such as construction workers, contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers.

Managing partner Richard Dick, has co-authored a book on Indiana mechanic’s lien law and has been a participant in numerous seminars to educate lawyers and the construction industry about construction law. He has been practicing in the area of construction law and mechanic’s liens for more than 30 years and has been recognized by both the Best Lawyers® and Super Lawyers® referral resources.

Indianapolis contract dispute attorney Richard Dick, and the other construction lawyers of the firm, assist commercial real estate owners and business owners to protect themselves against mechanic’s liens for construction projects that they plan to pursue for business purposes. The firm’s attorneys offer legal counsel regarding ways to ensure proper payment of workers, contractors and material suppliers.

There are very specific requirements that must be met in order for a mechanic’s lien claimant to establish a valid claim. Failure to comply with these requirements means that the claim will be lost.

In addition to mechanic’s lien rights, there are several related rights that a construction claimant may be entitled to pursue: bond claims, personal liability claims, and equitable compensation. Many cases involve complicated or confusing claim procedures and hidden traps. We help to navigate the complicated laws and to protect against unexpected consequences of non-compliance with statutory and other requirements.

The business law attorneys at our firm serve businesses and business owners in Indianapolis, Indiana as well as the surrounding communities of Carmel, Noblesville, Lebanon, Greenwood, Zionsville, Greenfield, Brownsburg, and Avon.
