This is a practical, easy-to-use compendium that outlines the essential information about design and construction law and contracting practices in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Now fully updated, this is an especially valuable resource for lawyers negotiating or reviewing construction or design contracts for projects outside their own jurisdiction. Because each state's information is presented following a standard organization of topics, the reader can easily compare how different jurisdictions treat the same issue by referring to the corresponding sections in different chapters.

Each chapter has been written by skilled real estate practitioners in that jurisdiction, bringing together the expertise of over 75 lawyers specializing in the law of construction and design. In addition, a State-by-State Guide to Construction and Design Law addresses issues central to design and construction contracts.

These topics include:

  • Financing
  • Consumer protection
  • Environmental matters and alternative dispute resolution
  • Emerging issues including ADR
  • Environmental matters such as Brownfields legislation
  • Consumer protection
