The construction contract is one of the most important aspects of any construction project. Before you sign, it can be useful to have one of our Montreal construction attorneys ensure that the terms and expectations and scope of the project are clearly defined by the contract. He or she will break down the terms and conditions, ensure that all terms work in the best interests of all parties, and address any potential issues before the project begins. This will help to prevent and resolve future disputes in a time-effective and cost-effective manner.
