Construction Contract Review
In today’s economy, every company is seeking an edge to maximize profits and sometimes that comes at the expense of those companies that are not protecting themselves. Here at Hershon Legal, I work to protect my construction clients in the formation of construction contracts and subcontracts so that they are protected from unfair, onerous and one-sided contract clauses that can make all the difference between a successful and profitable project and a disastrous money-losing project.

Q: Can’t I just sign the contract that is given to my company?
A: Sure, but it is not recommended. A contract is nothing more than a vehicle to shift risk from one party to another. By signing a contract without reviewing it or making changes, it can lead to unanticipated consequences. It is recommended that you have all of your contracts and subcontracts professionally reviewed by competent legal counsel with extensive experience which can alleviate unnecessary risks for your company.
Q: Won’t contract reviews cost a lot of money?
A: While having a contract reviewed is not free, the cost of not having your company’s contracts reviewed could be more costly. If you are not aware of the potential harmful terms in the contracts you sign, it could potentially cost tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Hershon Legal is unique in that it provides a flat rate fee structure and can tailor a program to fit your company’s needs and that allows your company to know what those costs are, each and every month so that there are never any surprises.
Q: How exactly do you do the contract review?
A: Hershon Legal performs a complete and comprehensive review and analysis of the contract or subcontract and creates an addendum that addresses all the contract clauses that need to be amended.
In some cases, negotiations will be necessary to finalize the amended contract language. When complete, the addendum will be used as part of the project’s contract documents.
