Challenges and Contractual Issues With Sub-Subcontractors

Gain a clearer understanding of the parties' rights and responsibilities in executing and performing the subcontract. A subcontractor in today's construction industry faces unique challenges and concerns - from dealing with a bid process that can lock in a bidding subcontractor without any written agreement, to subcontractor form contracts that are written largely, if not entirely, in favor of the general contractor. In addition to concerns in bidding and contract formation, a subcontractor must constantly evaluate and preserve its relationship with the prime contractor on its projects. In doing so, a subcontractor is often tempted if not altogether resigned to subject itself to unfavorable indemnification clauses, payment clauses, etc. However, a contract that is overly favorable to a prime contractor and places you at risk is too dangerous in today's construction climate. This topic will help subcontractors be prepared for the bid process and for contract formation. You'll learn how to diagnose areas of subcontract language that most often lead to costly dispute resolution for the parties. The material will also aid subcontractors in countering a general contractor's attempts to shift any and all risks associated with a subcontract to the subcontractor.
