It's not clear in what capacity you are working as consultants. The general rules is that a claimant entitled to lien rights includes almost anyone who has supplied materials or furnished labor for the improvement of real property, except for the owner of the property. The following persons are generally entitled to enforce a mechanics lien on the property benefited by their labor and materials: A contractor who has a direct contractual relationship with an owner, a subcontractor, a person that provides materials or supplies to be used or consumed in a project, an equipment lessor, a person who, acting as an employee, provides labor or provides services on a project, including a person or entity to which a portion of that claimant’s compensation is paid by an agreement, and a person licensed as an architect, landscape architect, professional engineer, or surveyor.
