Contract Drafting & Negotiations

Construction projects are fraught with obstacles and risks: differing site conditions, incomplete or ambiguous drawings and specifications, delays, environmental conditions, permitting issues, zoning issues, and the list goes on. The construction contract is the law of the project and determines which party must bear the costs and time delays associated with those obstacles and risks. 

Well-drafted construction contracts clearly define each party’s responsibilities with respect to such risks to set a construction project up for success. Ambiguous and open-ended contracts can lead to costly litigation and even more expensive construction delays.

During contract negotiations, we advocate for our clients’ interests to help avoid risks altogether or minimize and mitigate risks. We are equipped with the knowledge and tools to aggressively fight for your interests.
