Fidelity & Surety

Representing clients in the surety industry often requires a comprehensive knowledge of fidelity and surety matters.

Wall Templeton attorneys have considerable experience in this area and often represent clients in protecting their bond interests that may include bid bonds, performance and payment bonds, fidelity bonds, license bonds, permit bonds, bonds to discharge mechanics liens, and other bonds.

While our practice is focused primarily on the representation of sureties and contractors, we also represent owners, bond claimants, and bond agents.  Our attorneys routinely cover matters involving statutory bonds and bond claim disputes related to schools, churches, military bases, hospitals, industrial plants, commercial projects, highways, and bridges.

We provide a wide range of services to clients in default, tender, completion, and take-over situations, and utilize recognized consultants to assist us in reviewing scheduling issues, assessing quality of work issues, and determining the values of work.

Our attorneys are members of industry associations and have presented topics of regional and national interest at seminars on fidelity and surety law.  At the state level, we have drafted legislative amendments and testified before the legislature on issues impacting the surety industry.

We have the tools and resources to assist clients in making an early assessment of their bond claim dispute, develop a strategy for resolving the bond claim, and vigorously represent their interests in state court, federal court, and before administrative bodies and tribunals.
