Public Entity Construction Contracts: The Pivotal Dispute Provisions
Each year public entities spend billions of dollars on construction projects. As a result of these projects, time-consuming and costly complications such as construction project delay claims, defective workmanship, force majeure claims, lien issues, insurance issues, jurisdiction, payment issues and indemnification issues may arise.
