Construction Contracts

Every construction contract, from a home remodel to a skyscraper, involves an interlocking series of contractual relationships among owners, contractors, designers, engineers, subcontractors, suppliers, insurers, and laborers.  If something goes wrong, these agreements, whether written or oral, will largely dictate who bears the resulting loss.  Thus, it is vital that each participant consults a lawyer at the beginning of the project to get help in drafting and understanding the contracts that define these relationships.  HBC attorneys have extensive experience in drafting, reviewing, and litigating construction contracts.  Our firm’s experience with lawsuits involving poorly drafted or unbalanced contracts enables us to help clients spot and eliminate potential trouble areas in the documents — before construction begins.
