The bigger the construction project on which you embark, the more opportunities there are for something to go wrong somewhere down the line.
That’s why it is so essential to make sure that you involve your construction law attorney in the pertinent aspects of your business. For instance, if you are about to sign a major contract, make sure that your attorney reviews its terms before ever signing anything.
You can bet the other side conducted a full legal review of the documents you submitted, so why should you do any less? You may think that everything checks out, only to learn later that the terms are far more favorable to the other party than they are to you.
The time to learn that is prior to your affixing your signature to the voluminous documents, not much later once an incident occurs or an impasse holds up progress on the project.
You should never be in such a hurry to sign off on a contract that you skip the important legal review step. It will always be money well-spent if your attorney can point out a flaw in an otherwise seemingly fine contract.
We help our clients prevent unnecessary litigation before the fact, but if something slips between the cracks, our firm is always ready and available to step into the breach and fight for our clients.
We can also assist in the early phases of contract negotiation to ensure that all facets of the transaction are weighed, considered and represented on the legal documents before you sign anything that is legally binding.
