Litigating and Negotiating Construction Contracts Webinar
By Tim O’Toole
The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present “Litigating and Negotiating Construction Contracts” on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, at 10:00 AM CDT.
This is an introduction to the most commonly used construction contract forms, which are published by the American Institute of Architects (“AIA”) with a focus on five key issues covered in those form contracts - issues that are often discussed in negotiation or the subject of litigation arising out of construction contracts. The purpose is to introduce the basic construction contract provisions and to demonstrate how particular construction contract clauses operate to shape and define the litigation issues that arise upon breach.
To make this discussion more meaningful, the focus will be on:
- Changes under the contract;
- Differing site conditions;
- Delay and other timing issues;
- Payment issues; and
- Contract termination.
This webinar is free to all attendees. Register for “Litigating and Negotiating Construction Contracts” at www.masoncontractors.org/live.
