In just one week, the STA will be holding its highly anticipated panel presentation on onerous contract clauses and their impact on subcontractors. This is a topic near and dear to my heart; as subs, we are constantly bombarded with lengthy contacts filled with verbose and often confusing language. I’ve often felt the subcontractor community needed guidance to better understand what we are being asked to sign, and I am extremely excited for the upcoming meeting. Moderated by industry veteran and STA Legal Counsel, Henry Goldberg, who has put together a stellar panel of guests, the presentation will address such hot-button topics as:
■ Contract Scope and Disputed Work Provisions
■ Design Liability Traps
■ Adverse Payment Terms
■ Preserving Rights and Avoiding Waivers and Forfeitures
■ Disputed Work Provisions
■ Prosecuting Claims
■ Termination for Default/for Convenience
■ Insurance Requirements
■ Resolving Disputes
I urge you to join us which on Tuesday, June 4, from 5:30pm-8:00pm at Manhattan Manor for this important event. As a special bonus, each attendee will receive an STA Industry White Paper that reviews key clauses and provisions that should be considered when reviewing any construction contract. This paper was carefully crafted by Mr. Goldberg and his team at Moritt Hock & Hamroff LLP, and will serve as a perfect companion to the night’s discussion.
This is an event you don’t want to miss! I hope to see many of our member and friends on June 4.
