Know When to Say When

For construction professionals working on large-scale construction projects, terminating a contract is a complex, risky, and significant act to take—but it can be necessary. Deciding whether to terminate requires that you consider multiple factors far beyond your belief that the other party breached. For instance, you must weigh the legal bases for termination, the potential litigation costs, the damages that might arise from making the wrong decision, and numerous intangible factors.

Learn how to calculate your odds of coming out on top—even if you determine that contract termination is the best course of action. Join construction attorney Stephen A. Hess in this information-packed webinar as he takes you in-depth into the legal and monetary considerations you must make before, during, and after you decide to terminate a project. He will outline the major factors, including economic aspects, that will and should guide your decision—as well as reveal how certain difficult termination decisions can turn out to be quite simple.

After attending this instructive session, you will understand the critical differences between the two types of contract termination, how standard form contracts typically handle termination, and when contracts can be terminated even in the absence of controlling contract provisions. You’ll also be well equipped to make smart decisions based on how courts determine termination-related damages and who may very likely end up paying the attorneys’ fees. Most important, you’ll walk away with the confidence to make termination decisions that do not introduce unanticipated risks and consequences.
