Summary

Knowledge of construction law and employment law is essential to running a successful construction business.

Coming from one of the most respected construction law firms in the world, this bestselling guide provides a practical, plain-English introduction to the significant legal topics and questions affecting construction industry professionals. This Fourth Edition offers a complete update of the classic reference, with coverage of the recently revised industry-standard contract documents produced by the AIA, AGC, EJCDC, and others for 2007/2008. The new edition includes a CD featuring sample contracts and documents as well as updated instructor support material.
