My contracting philosophy is to identify the client's position, state it clearly, and state it once. My approach is to eliminate inconsistencies and avoid language that could create ambiguity or foster miscommunication.
A set of coordinated contracts is critical to a complete understanding of a construction project and to establishing consistent expectations among all parties. I have drafted and negotiated over a thousand contracts for hundreds of various types of projects, and have worked with all major sectors of the construction industry.
I am familiar with all of the major association template forms: AIA, ConsensusDocs, EJCDC, DBIA, and CMAA. "Familiar" means not only analyzing, drafting and negotiating those forms, but also speaking to industry groups about the forms and the periodic updates that are issued by the sponsoring associations. For AIA and ConsensusDocs forms, I have also participated on committees and task forces providing input to the associations in the process of updating and revising those forms.
I welcome you to contact me to discuss how I can assist with your contracting needs.
