Construction Contract Drafting, Negotiation, and Review

Comprehensive Contract Drafting and Review Services

Contracts are the foundation of every successful construction project, outlining the terms and conditions under which work is to be performed, payments are to be made, and disputes are to be resolved. At NewPoint Law Group, LLP, we offer a full range of contract drafting and review services to safeguard your interests and ensure compliance with California's construction laws and regulations.

Customer Contracts

Creating robust contracts with your clients is crucial for protecting your rights and ensuring smooth project completion. Our services include:

  • Project Scope Definition: Clearly defining the work to be performed, including specifications, timelines, and deliverables.

  • Payment Terms: Structuring payment schedules that align with project milestones, including progress payments, retainage, and final payment terms.

  • Change Orders: Establishing procedures for handling changes in project scope, including cost adjustments and time extensions.

  • Dispute Resolution: Incorporating clauses for resolving disputes through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation to minimize disruptions.

Vendor and Supplier Contracts

Ensuring reliable supply chains and services is vital for any construction project. We help you draft and review contracts with vendors and suppliers to:

  • Define Deliverables: Clearly specify the materials, equipment, or services to be provided, including quality standards and delivery schedules.
