Detailed And Thorough Construction Contracts Can Make A Difference
Contracts are the linchpin for success in any construction venture. They are critical to establishing expectations, charting a course of action, defining responsibilities and outlining remedies. Because of the central role they play, construction contracts require careful review and meticulous detail.

Proactive Strategies For Success
Our firm provides strategic legal services in negotiating, drafting, reviewing and enforcing construction contracts. We routinely advise clients on the elements of a solid contract that will set the stage for success rather than failure, confusion or ambiguity.
Creating a watertight contract is an important proactive strategy for any type of construction project. However, drafting contracts requires a keen eye for detail. Our lawyers can carefully craft and analyze the legal effect of common construction contract clauses such as:
- Indemnity provisions
- Liquidated damages provisions
- Scope of work provisions
- Payment schedules
- “Pay-if-paid” clauses
- “Time is of the essence” clauses
- Delay and extension clauses
- Subrogation clauses
- Bond and warranty requirements
- Dispute resolution requirements
- Choice and law of forum
- Attorney fee provisions
Our familiarity with the construction industry — and the business considerations our clients face — enable us to provide focused and nuanced guidance. We combine expertise and collaboration to achieve outstanding results.
“When a contractor faces a construction dispute, they want someone who not only understands the law, but more importantly, understands the construction business.
