Construction Litigation, Louisiana Liens and Privileges
Mechanic’s liens or construction liens – called privileges in Louisiana – protect the rights of contractors and subcontractors to collect the money property owners owe them for their work on a specific piece of real estate. Liens are designed to protect contractors in case homeowners or property owners refuse to pay for work completed on their property.
Louisiana lien law has its own unique labyrinth of rules, and perfecting a lien involves meeting strict deadlines. Contractors and materialmen need professional legal counsel to help them file all the necessary paperwork and notices to ensure their liens can be preserved and perfected.
