Contract Preparation and Negotiation
Contracts matter. With years of experience drafting and litigating construction contracts for owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, and homebuilders , Slates Harwell has developed an acute understanding of the importance of contract terms. When properly drafted, these terms can positively alter the course of a dispute and keep project interruptions to a minimum. With Slates Harwell’s help, our clients can be confident their contracts provide the framework they need to have a successful project.
Slates Harwell provides clients with construction contracts in any form they require, whether that is a form promulgated by the AIA, EJCDC, ConsensusDocs, TREC, or the DBIA, or one that is manuscripted to fit a particular client’s needs. In addition to drafting and negotiating design and construction prime contracts and subcontracts, consultant agreements, lender consents and other financial agreements, access agreements, easements, licenses, crane swing agreements, and staging area agreements as well as homebuilder purchase and sale agreements and disclosures, we also draft and negotiate joint venture agreements, severance agreements, and employment agreements.
