There are two manners that any construction project is analyzed for from a legal perspective: private or public. This is important from a construction law standpoint in order to determine which statutory scheme governs the party’s rights.
The Louisiana legislature enacted both the Louisiana Private Works Act, which governs private projects, and the Louisiana Public Works Act, which governs public projects. While the statutory frameworks are similar, there are distinct differences that an experienced construction lawyer should be aware of to protect a construction client’s rights. Let our experienced construction lawyers guide you through the legal framework to ensure your rights are protected, and you can profitably perform services on your next construction project.
