Our construction law attorneys know that a construction contract is so much more than a “license to invoice.” Contracts allocate risks, rights and responsibilities. The contract is the law of the project. A well-planned contract is the product of forethought. Forward thinking analyzes the risks – not just of construction, but those unique to the project at hand. A successful contract allocates project risks to the party best able to bear those risks. Some overzealous project participants attempt to over-allocate risk to the detriment of the project. Recognizing a poor allocation of risk requires an understanding of project risk, participant capacity and current law.
As construction law attorneys, we maintain libraries of current industry documents and we have drafted manuscript agreements, contracts and subcontracts to suit projects of all shapes, sizes and all delivery methods. We have reviewed and dissected contracts and subcontracts originating from every corner of our nation.
