Judge approves of Chicago construction company's contract

This week, an Iowa judge approved a construction contract presented by a Chicago construction company for the building of a new maximum-security prison to be build outside of Fort Madison.  The judge upheld a previous decision from the state to allow a $116.9 million contract with Walsh Construction.

Walsh Construction’s contract came under question from an Des Moines construction company, the Weitz Co., and a construction trade company, Master Builders of Iowa.  The two companies accused Walsh Construction of turning in incorrect bidding forms when establishing its contract.

Officials have not said whether or not the Iowa construction companies will once again appeal the decision.  Construction on the prison is currently scheduled to end in the summer of 2013.

What is business litigation?

Business litigation occurs when a business dispute arises and it can not be resolved through negotiation. Business litigation occurs when a person or business entity has a legal issue with another business entity.

Infringement on a patent, intellectual property, and copyright are all examples of a situation where business litigation may be needed. Concerns with finances, such as unethical broker behavior,  and investments are also legal issues that arise that can be very complicated to work through.

If a dispute has occurred between you and another business entity, you need experienced representation on your side during this difficult time. Contact the Des Moines business litigation lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling (877) 327-2600 today.
