Construction Contracts

How do you manage and administer the risks in the contracts you sign? When something goes wrong, what seemed at first to be an administrative afterthought can turn into a multi-million dollar and multi-year nightmare. While every contract is different, we’ll highlight the areas you need to focus on to make sure that the contract being signed is fair and understood by all parties. 

This webinar will:

  • Focus on often problematic contract elements from both insurance and legal perspectives
  • Provide strategies to help identify unfavorable language and avoid potential compliance issues before they lead to complications
  • Discuss best practices to administer and negotiate the contracts you’re asked to sign.
