Attorney Eric Travers, Kegler, Brown, Hill and Ritter, Explains How to Get Better Subcontracts in New FASA Video-on-Demand
ALEXANDRIA, Va.—It is a reality for construction subcontractors that on most jobs they will be asked to sign, often on short notice and with little time to consider the full implications of all the terms, a contract form prepared by their customer and containing numerous clauses that shift risk in a way that does not reflect what the subcontractor considered when putting its bid price together.
In a new video-on-demand from the Foundation of the American Subcontractors Association, “Getting Better Subcontracts,” attorney Eric Travers, Kegler, Brown, Hill and Ritter, provides practical information on the unique considerations and legal risks of subcontracting, as well as practical pointers to help subcontractors negotiate fairer, and better, subcontracts. He also focuses on the most common subcontracting issues of concern that arise.
“Getting Better Subcontracts” (Item #8121) is $65 for ASA members and $95 nonmembers. This and other on-demand videos are available through FASA’s Contractors’ Knowledge Depot.
FASA was established in 1987 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity to support research, education and public awareness.
