What terms should an agreement address in order to minimize uncertainties during the construction phase of a real estate development project? How should you advise your client on what to look out for in a term sheet or during contract negotiations?

From owners to developers, design professionals to contractors of all tiers, construction professionals have numerous questions about structuring and papering their relationships on a project. Offit Kurman attorney Wojciech “Voytek” Jackowski has answers.

Attendees will learn about the various project risks, understand the perspective each party brings to negotiations, and discover best practices for securing favorable, mutually beneficial results. The program will conclude with an update on current legal trends, recent touchstone decisions, and coming legal challenges in the construction industry, along with guidance on how to address these changes.
