With over one hundred years of combined construction law experience, the attorneys of Babcock Scott & Babcock represent sureties in construction disputes involving payment bond and performance bond claims, construction completion and contractor tender agreements, project takeover agreements with the owner (obligee), project completion work outs, and indemnity claims against the bond principal and the individual indemnitors.
It is often the case that the surety will authorize our lawyers to undertake the surety’s defense of a payment bond or performance bond claim. Our attorneys have gained the confidence of national surety bond providers, including CNA, Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, Zurich North America, Old Republic Surety Company, Westchester Fire Insurance Company, Travelers, and many others.
Our attorneys have been and continue to be active members of the Surety Association of Utah, having served as officers and committee members. A number of our attorneys are also active members of the Fidelity and Surety Law Committee of the American Bar Association.
We work closely with our contractor client’s bond agents, representatives and underwriters to help our clients qualify for a line of bonding credit and increase that line of bonding as their capacity grows.
