Construction law is the definitive treatise on the litigation of construction disputes and the drafting of construction contracts.  It addresses:

  • Negotiation of construction contracts among the owner, architect, engineer, contractors, and subcontractors
  • Liability for delay, cost overruns, defects, negligence, fraud, misrepresentation, and other breaches of the construction contract
  • Remedies for breach, including compensatory, punitive, and consequential damages, specific performance, rescission and restitution, reformation, attorneys’ fees, and interest
  • Interpretation of industry-standard documents, such as owner-contractor, owner-architect, and architect-consultant agreements

Steven G.M. Stein is the Editor-in-Chief of Construction Law. It is published by Matthew Bender Elite Products and available through the Lexis-Nexis Store.
