All webinar times are in ET


In this Part II of the AGC webinars addressing key contract clauses, our speakers will address indemnification, dispute resolution, termination, lien clauses and more.  As discussed in Part I, there are certain contract provisions that can make or break a project for contractors.  Knowing how to identify these critical clauses, and knowing how to revise them, when necessary, is vital to help ensure project profitability. You can purchase a recording of Part I in the AGC Store.

Two top-tier, legal professionals in the construction industry will discuss a number of contract provisions that are essential to contractor success.  They will review and analyze key requirements, and how various contracts address key risk allocation issues, so that you know how to best protect yourself in the future.  The ConsensusDocs 200 Owner and Contractor Agreement and the ConsensusDocs 750 Contractor and Subcontractor Agreement will be used to illustrate best practice risk allocation.

By the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify certain contract provisions that are critical to success for contractors.
  2. Review and analyze the key provisions.
  3. Recognize the consequences of poorly written or one-sided contracts.
  4. Discuss changes that should be made to poorly written or one-sided contracts.
