Maryland Construction Law Deskbook, Third Edition


The individual chapters from this single resource cover most of the key areas in construction law, from contract formation, to performance disputes, to remedy granting clauses, to construction damages, and finally, to the dispute resolution process.

The “best of the best” Maryland construction law practitioners have penned the individual chapters included in this Deskbook.

While viewed as an indispensable text that belongs in the legal libraries of every Maryland construction law practitioner, the Deskbook is not a shelf book. Lawyers that toil in the fields of Maryland construction law find a handier place for it—on their desk (or readily available on their computer).

The NEW Third Edition adds 4 new chapters to this valuable resource from the MSBA’s Construction Law Section. New chapters include: Licensing, Construction & the Environment, Zoning Law, and Construction Technology. Subjects of particular application include design professionals, contracting by state and local governments, construction safety issues, bonding, mechanic’s liens, and statutory remedies. New and developing fields of construction law are also addressed, such as “green” construction and non-traditional project delivery systems including design-build contracting and construction management, are explained. The latest Edition provides a timely discussion of force majeure and relief avenues from disruption issues caused by the pandemic.

Maryland Construction Law Deskbook, Third Edition will prove to be an indispensable addition to your law library.
