Our attorneys have years of experience preparing and reviewing custom designed contracts and working with common standard-form contracts published by AIA, AGC, and other industry groups. On large and complex projects, we can assist you in preparing comprehensive agreements that address all phases of the work. For smaller projects or limited transactions, PLDR’s attorneys can craft a variety of contracts, including short-form agreements, credit agreements, and one-time purchase orders.

PLDR also has a significant amount of experience creating design agreements, design-build agreements, construction management agreements, and purchase agreements.
For both public and private projects, a payment bond can be used as an alternative means to ensure that a subcontractor or supplier gets paid.
