More than 60 experienced practitioners came together to produce this single-volume ready resource on every facet of construction law. In addition to review by the editorial board, every chapter was peer reviewed by another experienced practitioner. And, because owners and contractors often have differing perspectives, whenever possible peer reviewers were chosen to reflect the perspective that differed from the author's.
Practice tips, drafting tips, comments, caveats, examples, and checklists are set off throughout the text.
