"Except in the middle of the battlefield, nowhere must men coordinate the movement of other men and materials in the midst of such chaos . . . as in a huge construction project." Blake Constr. v. C.J. Coakley Co. (D.C. App. 1981). A well-drafted contract can be your clients' map of the battlefield of construction disputes. This course will provide tips on how to advise your clients and improve their contracts to allocate risk, control the claims process, and create a clear path to resolve disputes.
