Under Construction - January 2009
This quarter, we have a packed edition of the Under Construction newsletter! In our first article, Stuart Einbinder and Jeff Singletary discuss the new mandatory disclosure requirements for federal government contracts. In the next two articles, the newest attorney to Snell & Wilmer's construction group, Fidelis Garcia, focuses on recently enacted laws in Arizona affecting the construction industry and military personnel. Our fourth article by Marc Erpenbeck and Colleen Schiman is timely, interesting, and informative as it addresses the benefits of green building. The next two articles, one by Ben Mitsuda and another by Richard Siever discuss understanding the impact and enforceability of a limitation of liability clause in your construction contract and revisions to the Clean Water Act, respectively. In our final article, Rick Erickson and Michelle Keogh focus on some of the steps and risks of contract termination which can be important to understand in an uncertain economy.
