Miller Act Claims Litigation

Learn what the Miller Act is and how it impacts your payment rights on federal construction projects.

Contractors working on federal projects cannot lien a federal project for nonpayment. The Miller Act provides the exclusive remedy for a subcontractor or material supplier on a federal construction project. A Miller Act bond is a powerful tool for subcontractors and suppliers. This course will explain how to secure Miller Act claims and common issues that arise litigating Miller Act claims.
