Getting Paid and Advanced Construction Law

  • 06/17/2015

In any economy getting paid is vital, and when jobs are scarce, margins are thin, and customers are holding on to their money, collecting your receivables is all the more important. This course discusses the basic legal principles of contract formation, subcontract negotiation, project performance and the legal rights and responsibilities of all parties, because the time to assess the risk of collection is not when the receivable is 90 days old, but before the contract is signed.

Following this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify ways to avoid risk of nonpayment
  • Recognize legal principles of contracts and subcontract negotiations
  • Discuss legal rights and responsibilities
  • Explain typical risks associated with subcontracts
