No contractor wants to end up in the headlines because of a dispute over a project gone bad. And yet Dennis found three separate instances in one week where parties had disputed over various contractual provisions. No one wins when disagreements over contracts end up as matters of law.

Please tune in this week as Dennis emphasizes the importance actually READING YOUR CONTRACTS, educating your PMs and field teams on the basics of construction law, and offers guidance for how to stay away from litigation as a means of dispute resolution. What has helped you avoid the legal system? Please share with us in the comments.
