Contract Negotiations: a Small Investment That Pays Big

Handling Construction Contracts in Los Angeles, California, Since 1962

It's often said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In that same vein, it's always best to avoid the kind of disputes that lead to construction litigation. Even if you "win" the dispute, you will have spent a lot of time and money doing it.

The only way to avoid those conflicts is by exercising foresight — crafting a construction contract that anticipates and plans for situations when a project goes wrong. At Gill and Baldwin, P.C., we can help. Call 866-778-8034 or contact us online today for an appointment.

As time goes on, laws get more complex and construction contracts become more lengthy and complicated. Never sign anything you don't understand. Have an attorney look over it first.

Does Your Contract Leave You in a Strong Position?

Anyone who hasn't gone to law school and learned to speak "legalese" will have a hard time understanding what a construction contract means. What are the real-world implications of the language on the page?

There's only one way to find out: Have an experienced, qualified lawyer look over it first. Have someone who you trust to bargain on your behalf. If you aren't well-represented during contract negotiations, you may sign something you regret later.

What About Extra Work, or Change Orders?

We can help you adapt construction contracts to accommodate extra work and change orders.

When projects change, then the contracts between developers, contractors and subcontractors need to change as well. The best solution is to already have a construction contract that can anticipate and adapt to such changes. If you don't, you should have a lawyer to bargain for you.
