The “best of the best” Maryland construction law practitioners have penned the individual chapters included in this deskbook.
The text is intended to be a quick and practical reference tool, one that is meant to be kept nearby on the lawyer’s desk (or computer), not bookcase. It hopefully will be used both by those who toil in the fields of Maryland Construction Law on a regular basis as well as those who find themselves faced with a construction issue on an occasional basis.
The NEW Second Edition adds 3 new chapters to this valuable resource from the MSBA’s Construction Law Section. New chapters include: Insurance Coverage, Labor and Employment Law, and Bankruptcy in Construction. 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. 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.
