Bassford Remele is a full-service litigation firm that devotes its practice exclusively to providing trial and appellate repreesntation for local, national, and international clients in a wide array of business litigation.
Today’s construction agreements are complex contracts, often containing specific provisions that can effectively transfer thousands of dollars of risk among the contractors and their insurers. The attorneys in Bassford Remele’s construction law group have substantial experience in assisting their clients in analyzing, drafting and enforcing risk shifting provisions in construction agreements. Such provisions include indemnification, waiver of subrogation and procurement of insurance agreements, among others. They may determine responsibility both for defense costs and the ultimate responsibility for paying damages arising out of bodily injury or property damage. Our attorneys have the expertise to educate and represent general contractors and subcontractors regarding the effect of these various provisions. We help our clients understand the ramifications of these provisions, such as whether our client has accepted or can transfer its risk. These key provisions are becoming an increasingly significant part of today’s construction-related disputes and the lawyers of Bassford Remele are recognized as leaders in this area.
