Shan Davis & Associates was retained to represent a subcontractor in a multimillion dollar payment dispute on the Laughlin Regional Heritage Greenway Trails Park. After the general contractor failed to pay over $1 million for work performed by the subcontractor, Shan Davis & Associates filed an application with the District Court under Nevada’s prompt payment statute, Nevada Revised Statute Chapter 338. During the pendency of the action, and in retaliation to the application filed with the District Court, the general contractor complained to the Nevada State Contractors Board (“NSCB”) that the subcontractor was working beyond the scope of its contractor’s license. The NCSB issued a citation to the subcontractor which could have required it to pay a fine, and if affirmed, the alleged violation could have been reported on the subcontractor’s public record, which could have had long term consequences including the potential of the subcontractor being excluded from bidding on various types of construction projects. Shan Davis & Associates contested the citation, and after negotiationing with the NSCB, the citation was dismissed, thereby absolving the subcontractor of all liability. The subcontractor’s record remains untarnished.
The attorneys at Shan Davis & Associates have successfully represented businesses in administrative matters before the Nevada State Contractors Board, Department of Business and Industry (OSHA), and the Nevada Employment Security Department.
