It is not unusual for a general contractor and subcontractors on a construction project to find themselves in the position of non-payment for their work as the invoices come due. The Tennessee legislature has enacted the Mechanics’ and Materialmen’s Lien statute that provides the means by which a general contractor and subcontractors can protect their respective interests and collect the funds due to them. The Mechanics’ and Materialmen’s Lien statute is very specific as to the actions which the contractor or subcontractor must take and the time within which such actions must be taken to preserve their rights against the property of the debtor, including the timely filing of a Notice of Nonpayment by an unpaid subcontractor.

It is important that a general contractor and/or subcontractor have an attorney who has experience working with the Mechanics’ and Materialmen’s Lien to ensure that the proper steps are taken in a timely manner to preserve all of their rights and remedies. During his 22 years of practicing law, Mr. Pritchard has represented both general contractors and subcontractors to collect monies owed to them by debtors. Mr. Pritchard is knowledgeable of the actions which must be taken under the Mechanics’ and Materialmen’s Lien statute to maximize the recovery by the general contractor and the subcontractor.

If you are a general contractor or subcontractor who is not getting paid for the goods or services you are providing on a construction project, contact Mr. Pritchard at 901-249-8748 to discuss your case.
