Davis|Stibor Recovers $390,000.00 for Client on Federal Construction Project

Davis|Stibor has a long history of successfully collecting money on behalf of its construction clients.  On December 29, 2015, Davis|Stibor collected $390,000.00 for its client on a federal construction project.  The general contractor received payment from the United States for the work Davis|Stibor’s client performed, and then failed to pay numerous subcontractors.  On behalf of its client, Davis|Stibor made a claim against the general contractor’s payment bond.  In response, the general contractor’s surety (the insurance company that issued the payment bond) alleged that the United States had not paid the general contractor for Davis|Stibor’s client’s work.  Knowing this was probably not true, Davis|Stibor immediately filed a public records request with the United States Army Corp of Engineers (the project administrator) and requested the United States’ payment records.  The documents produced by the Corp of Engineers proved that the general contractor had in-fact been paid for Davis|Stibor’s clients work, and that the Corp affirmed and accepted the work before issuing payment.  Thereafter, working with law firms in Utah, the place of the general contractors’ incorporation, Davis|Stibor was able to force the general contractor to deposit the unpaid sums with the Utah Federal District Court after its bank accounts were effectively frozen.  The Federal District Court issued payment to Davis|Stibor’s client shortly thereafter, fully resolving the case.
