CONTRACT REVIEWS

Contract review services can help a design professional understand the key parts of their contract before they sign it, and hopefully help you avoid lawsuits completely.

PRE-CLAIMS ASSISTANCE

When an issue arises on a construction contract, seek pre-claims assistance earlier as part of your internal risk-management best practices.

INDEMNIFICATION CLAUSES

Past experience confirms that indemnifications clauses are frequently the most dangerous terms of any construction contract. 

DESIGN CHANGES

Documenting the need for design changes, authority to proceed, and the scope of the design changes is the key to avoiding future costly claims and lawsuits.

OPEN LINES OF COMMUNICATIONS

Too many costly claims and lawsuits begin as nothing more than a miscommunication among the owner, contractor, subcontractor, and design professional.

CLAIMS WARNING SIGNS

All design professionals should train their employees to identify early signs of trouble. Be proactive, but not over reactive, to manage risks and avoid potential lawsuits.

QUALITY CONTROL CHECKLISTS

The best way for a design professional to control quality is by developing standard protocols and checklists they commit to follow in every phase of a project.

SUBCONTRACTOR DESIGN LIABILITY

The best way for a design professional to control quality is by developing standard protocols and checklists they commit to follow in every phase of a project.

LITIGATION MITIGATION PLAN

A strong litigation mitigation plan can help prepare a design professional to defend against the inevitable lawsuit when it comes.

LITIGATION RESPONSE PLAN

A critical part of any firm’s overall risk management program should be development of a well thought out, written “Litigation Response Plan.”
