As you probably have guessed, I review a lot of construction contracts. As a Virginia construction attorney, I hope that I get to review these contracts either during the drafting process or prior to my construction clients signing them. Why? Because as I’ve “mused” many times before, I can add value and help my clients more at these stages than during the cost prohibitive claim/litigation stage. I have found that taking the time to clarify, negotiate and understand your construction contract with the help of a construction lawyer is much less costly than waiting and hoping to avoid disaster.
