The best foundation for your construction project is a strong contract. In theory, if a contract is well-drafted, everyone will understand what is expected of them and the project will proceed smoothly.

The Benefits Of Having An Attorney Work On Your Contract
There are a lot of contract forms available on the Internet and in books that cover the basics of any agreement between two parties for a construction project. However, these are generic forms and do not take the specifics of your job into account. You are less likely to come up against contractual difficulties if you have your contract drafted or reviewed by an attorney.You must know the risks that you have undertaken and the remedies available to you. Our firm can help.
Our firm regularly reviews and edits contracts, as well as analysis and distribution of risk, for companies of all sizes with projects in White Plains and the surrounding areas, including major international construction firms. We have the skill and knowledge to craft a contract that fits the unique needs of your project and will protect you in the event of a contractor dispute.
