Over two successful editions, Construction Claims has become the sourcebook of choice on the subject for construction professionals from all areas of the industry. Now extensively updated, the Third Edition includes new material on design/build implications for construction; dispute review boards and their proper use; partnering to avoid disputes; and federal and relevant state environmental regulations.

Written by a prestigious and experienced author team, it uses an accessible, step-by-step approach that follows the contracting process from start to finish, with detailed coverage of provisions of the law, "red flag" contract clauses, and documentation issues and procedures. It also addresses the key aspects of prosecuting and defending claims, from claims presentation to formal dispute resolution. Complete with dozens of new forms and checklists, plus case histories, mini-cases, and more, this edition is an essential resource for anyone involved in construction and the law.
