Our firm deals with construction contracts on a regular basis. Nearly all work performed on a construction project is carried out pursuant to a contract with the owner, contractor, subcontractor, or some other party on the project.
The purpose of the contract is to govern the relationship between the entities and determine the duties and obligations that the contract imposes upon said parties. That’s why when problems occur on the project, you need to know the terms of the contract. You also should have a lawyer review or draft your contract before beginning a project.
The lawyer can explain your rights to you, and help you understand your responsibilities on the job.

Answering your Construction Contract Law Question
Issues almost always arise on a construction project. Sometimes Contractors wonder whether they are supposed to pay for the issue or whether someone else should be footing the bill. The contract almost always governs these situations.
That is why it is critical to know and understand the terms of your construction contract. On big construction projects the contracts can be quite extensive with voluminous amounts of legalese that can be difficult to understand.
Our construction law attorneys can sort through that dense language and advise you as to how you should best proceed on the project. Make sure that you know your rights if you’re working on a construction project, and consult with an attorney.
If you have a question about whether your contract is in compliance with Missouri law or whether certain clauses should be added or struck to protect your interests, contact one of our St. Louis Construction Lawyers today.
