We help our clients to protect their money through drafting and filing mechanic's lien,
payment bond, and performance bond claims. Our attorneys work with our clients to draft
and enforce contracts, credit applications, personal guarantees, indemnity agreements,
letters of credit, security agreements, UCC filings, joint check agreements, and
mechanic's lien waivers. The lawyers of our firm also educate our clients about protecting
their money through Utah's State Construction Registry (SCR) by filing Notices of
Commencement, Preliminary Notices, and Notices of Completion. When it comes to protecting
your money on mechanic's lien and payment bond claims, you could say that we "wrote the book"
- our firm publishes "Protecting Your Money: Utah's Mechanic's Lien Law."
We have also written a number of articles for the National Association of Credit Management
(NACM) and other associations regarding construction-related collection issues.
