Construction Administration Services & Risk Management 

Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck, LLP is an established construction law firm with offices in New York and New Jersey. Our construction practice handles issues at all phases of a construction project, from contract negotiations and drafting to contract administration to dispute resolution.

By delivering the full scope of services, our construction law attorneys are able to see the big picture and take proactive steps to mitigate risk. We help developers, project owners, construction managers, contractors and trade contractors limit exposure to liability and loss through effective construction administration. Our philosophy is that avoiding the problem is better than fixing it and we anticipate issues that may arise and preemptively create solutions.

Notice Requirements

Notice provisions (especially in public improvement contracts) generally impose on the contractor an obligation to notify the other side concerning items such as termination, delays, extra work, extensions of time, and damages.  

Adherence to the notice requirements is essential to preserving claim rights or defending against claims. Our lawyers meticulously review key contract administration clauses governing notice time frames, content of notices and waivers. We assist our clients in analyzing breach of the notice provisions, the appropriate actions and available relief.

Risk Management

The construction business is fraught with risk and project issues/problems can give rise to liability and damages. Contractors, therefore, must consider a strong risk management plan. Our attorneys draft effective risk management contract provisions, including risk shifting provisions and indemnity clauses. We also help construction businesses implement comprehensive risk management practices and programs. We also review insurance coverage to ensure the business is fully protected from loss and liability.
