Contract Negotiation and Preparation

Proper documentation is an essential aspect of any construction project, particularly if a dispute occurs. Whether you are a general contractor building single family residences, a government contractor, or a developer of retail and commercial projects, we can assist you in preparing the necessary documentation, ensuring that your rights are protected throughout a project and during the dispute resolution process. We can guide you through contract and change order negotiations, contract preparation and coordination and the structuring of unusual procurement arrangements such as joint ventures. We can also advise you on preparing bonds, guarantees, letters of credit and other forms of security.

Once you are actively engaged in a project, we can help you manage the complex relationships to keep the project moving. We can provide you with analyses of change orders, delays, cost overruns, defective specifications, changed conditions and similar occurrences. Early involvement in the project on our part can further ensure proper documentation, fact preservation, and contract compliance, while also providing you with the ability to make informed decisions consistent with your overall business objectives.

As a project is wrapping up, we can provide you with specialized advice regarding project close-out strategies related to claims, including but not limited to special payment conditions, settlement agreements, bonds, liens, joint check arrangements, real estate workouts and secured transactions.
