Erin defended me in a court case against a much, much more experienced lawyer, and won me a large award of attorney fees and court costs from the other party, who won none of their contentions. I could not have been more pleased, save to have never been in court in the first place. Thank you Erin!

Construction Contracts – How a Plano Construction Attorney Can Help

Typically, numerous contracts cover various aspects of a given project. For example, a homeowner or business may execute contracts with an architect, a builder and a bank to design a plan, construct the structure and finance the work. The builder may have agreements with several different subcontractors who perform the engineering, electrical, plumbing, drywall and roofing services. Each subcontractor in turn would contract with vendors to supply specific materials, such as cement, bricks, tiles, wood beams, air conditioning units and landscaping components. These multiple contracts weave together to form a successful project. To negotiate an effective contract, our team considers how the contracts made by the other participants affect your terms.

Just as a sturdy structure requires a strong foundation, your construction project must also be built on the solid terms contained in your contracts. We help to design a negotiation strategy that puts you in the best position possible. We then draft a contract that clearly and thoroughly reflects the terms of the parties’ agreement on such matters as:

  • Price and payment terms
  • Financing conditions
  • Materials, design and engineering specifications
  • Performance standards
  • Change Orders
  • Construction delays and delay damages
  • Insurance and risk of loss
  • Indemnification clauses
  • Warranties
  • Mechanics liens
  • Applicable laws and jurisdictions
  • Remedies for nonperformance
