Drafting Project Contracts

"An oral contract isn't worth the paper it's written on." Attributing statement to Yogi Berra, as cited by the court in Walthal v. Rusk, 172 F.3d 481, 482 (7th Cir. 1999)

Drafting Project-Specific Design and Construction Contracts

There is no good substitute for a carefully prepared and coordinated set of design and construction contracts. Unfortunately, inconsistencies and other weaknesses in a contract are often obvious only after a dispute has arisen. Also, construction projects rarely involve just one contract. Therefore, it is highly important to thoroughly coordinate the rights, duties, and obligations of owners, architects, engineers, interior designers, contractors, subcontractors, and others in all written contracts affecting a project.

Contracts prepared with an understanding of both the design and the construction processes can reduce the likelihood or scale of misunderstandings, disappointments, and costly disputes during construction.

Our practice involves both contract drafting and litigation. The combination enhances our insight into both - and our ability to do both well.
