About this Book
If you're involved in multi-state construction and design projects, this is the book you need.
A State-by-State Guide to Construction and Design Law is a practical, easy-to-use compendium that outlines the essential information about design and construction law and contracting practices in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Now fully updated, this is an especially valuable resource for lawyers negotiating or reviewing construction or design contracts for projects outside their own jurisdiction.
Because each state's information is presented following a standard organization of topics, the reader can easily compare how different jurisdictions treat the same issue by referring to the corresponding sections in different chapters. Each chapter has been written by skilled real estate practitioners in that jurisdiction, bringing together the expertise of over 75 lawyers specializing in the law of construction and design.
Whether you are preparing or negotiating a contract or resolving a problem that has occurred in a project, this is the first place you need to look for statutory and case law organized by state. It surveys by each state or jurisdiction the essential aspects of current construction and design law, including:
Licensing and regulation for design and construction professions
Statutory and case law governing contracting practices
In addition, A State-by-State Guide to Construction and Design Law addresses issues central to design and construction contracts. These topics include financing, consumer protection, environmental matters and alternative dispute resolution as well as emerging issues, including ADR, environmental matters such as Brownfields legislation, and consumer protection.
Make sure you have the legal tools you need when counseling clients involved in design and construction projects. This is an efficient and time-saving reference book that you'll refer to again and again in your practice.
