Kaplin Stewart helps its clients avoid problems, beginning with proper drafting of a construction contract. We understand when a standard contract is appropriate and when a custom contract should be drafted. Through our extensive knowledge of the complexities of construction project contracts, we can show you how to protect your interests. Our lawyers also consult with clients when problems arise to try and resolve them without litigation.
Although our goal is to prevent delays and problems through detailed attention to your construction contract, disputes may still arise.
