Negotiating And Drafting A Construction Contract
Any construction project, no matter how large or small will require numerous construction contracts. After all, any construction project often requires multiple teams of specialists and suppliers working together to complete a single project. With developers, contractors, project managers and suppliers there are a lot of specialty contracts. Our construction contract attorneys can help with:
- Fixed-price contracts
- Cost-plus contracts
- Design-build contracts
- Time and materials contracts
Our lawyers will make sure that the correct parties are included in the contract, the scope of the work is defined, the payment obligations are clear, the decision-making authority is defined and any necessary insurance information is included.
Navigating Construction Disputes And Litigation
Any contract attorney will tell you that the art of drafting a good contract lies in both protecting your company’s rights and interests but also anticipating and planning for potential problems in advance. However, it is nearly impossible to anticipate everything that could possibly go wrong on a construction project and conflicts often still arise. When they do, our litigators have over 120 years of combined experience with negotiating settlements and courtroom experience between them
Misunderstandings, blatant violations of the terms of the contract, changes in the scope of the work and problems with timely payments could all lead to potential conflicts with a construction contract.
