Construction Contracts: Drafting Issues, Spotting Red Flags and Allocating Risk, Part 2

March 28, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Construction contracts are among the most difficult agreements to draft or review, and negotiate. At every stage, building is fraught with substantial risk – timely regulatory approvals, cost containment and price certainty, financing contingencies, building deadlines, and a host of other risks. If these risks materialize, as is common, the bargained for exchange among the parties and their expectations are radically unsettled. The construction contract is a comprehensive and careful allocation of risks, a compromise between flexibility and price/cost certainty, and establishes procedures for resolving disputes short of costly litigation. This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting the most important provisions of construction contracts and cost-effective resolution of disputes.
