HRB has extensive experience assisting clients in selecting the best project delivery method for their projects, whether public or private. Our lawyers actually understand the risks and benefits of each delivery method, and know where to focus energy during contract negotiations to ensure the proper transfer and allocation of risk, and so clients obtain the maximum available benefits offered by the chosen delivery method. We work regularly with the AIA and ConsensusDOCS manuscript contracts, we know how the contract families integrate, and we know how to help clients customize those contract forms to meet their needs on specific projects. HRB lawyers have prepared custom contracts for use at all tiers, and when your project or your business requires a proprietary form of agreement, we can assist you in creating a custom contract or set of standardized contracts for regular use. We also counsel clients on indemnification, insurance risks and insurance coverage, including builder’s risk, OCIP, CCIP, and additional insured. Depending on the project, the insurance and indemnification requirements can be critical and are often overlooked. When bonds are a consideration, we assist clients in evaluating the risks/benefits and requirements for performance and payment bonds.
