“There are a number of critical provisions that are often overlooked by contractors in construction contracts,” Goldberg Segalla partner Laura A. Colca writes in Construction Executive. “The inclusion of these provision can often make the difference between a smooth resolution when a problem arises and full-blown litigation.”
In her article, Laura, a member of the firm’s Construction group and a leader of its Corporate Law and Transactions practice, addresses provisions regarding scope of work, dispute resolution, and force majeure—especially crucial in the current COVID-19 environment.
“It is extremely important for parties to construction contracts to properly memorialize the terms of their agreement in a well drafted document. While a comprehensive construction contract will not prevent disputes from occurring, it will make their resolution much easier and less costly for all involved,” she writes.
