If you are performing construction work of any sort, it is important to understand the contractor licensing requirements applicable to your work and projects. Not having the proper construction license(s) can cost your company substantial sums of money, as contracts executed by an unlicensed party may be considered unenforceable. In other situations, your rights to recover payment may be severely limited if you are not properly licensed.

As a result, it is essential to have a knowledgeable construction attorney who can advise you of your obligations under the law.
