Contracts are at the core of the construction industry. The numerous workers who contribute their skills and labor depend on contracts to establish the scope of the work, the rate of pay and other important rights. For contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and laborers, the contract forms the entire legal basis for their working relationship.
Because contracts are so central for those in the construction industry, it is important to ensure that you have a solid understanding of the terms of the contract. Your rights and compensation may depend on it.

Dissecting The Details

- Forum selection clauses
- Choice of law provisions
- Mandatory arbitration clauses
- "Pay if paid" clauses
