Under Construction - Summer 2022
July 13, 2022
Welcome to this summer edition of our Under Construction newsletter. We hope that 2022 has been wonderful so far for you, your family, and your company, and that you can enjoy some vacation time along the way.
In this newsletter, we explore various topics related to current construction trends and legal news that may be relevant to you and your business. We include articles about changes coming to the Davis – Bacon Act prevailing wage regulations, how written notice is sometimes crucial when required by your contract, whether California general contractors can collect compensation for work performed by unlicensed subcontractors, how an oral “Walk Away” settlement confirmed by emails may be enforceable, and that a design professional’s liability depends on the facts and contractual relationship of the parties, and much more.
From an owner pursuing consequential damages from a subcontractor, to negotiating clear construction contracts and all the matters set forth above, we’ve covered a wide range of concepts in the below articles and have tried to convey what we think would be helpful to you.
We hope you find these articles informative and enlightening. Please let us know if you want us to address a specific construction issue in a future newsletter. Have a profitable, busy and safe summer!
