Construction Contracts

Recognizing that every project is different, and that every client has unique business goals, practices and risk aversion, Miller Morton’s construction attorneys routinely tailor both custom and industry-form agreements (AIA, ConsensusDocs and DBIA) to the particular needs of our clients and their projects. Our transactional attorneys are intimately familiar with California law and stay on the cutting edge of the drafting practice, serving as resources not only for our clients, but for industry partners such as the AGC Legal Advisory Committee and the AIA.

As a result of our reputation and experience, we have the privilege of developing and negotiating contracts for some of the largest developers, contractors and real estate firms in the country. We also frequently serve as counsel to regional and local businesses, and we enjoy watching entities of all sizes achieve their ambitions with a little help from our drafting.

Our experience includes, but is not limited to drafting, negotiating and facilitating transactions such as:

    • Prime and subcontract agreements
    • Secured transactions for delivery of services and materials
    • Joint venture and partnership agreements
    • Development contracts with REITs
    • Other agreements between real estate owners, contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and additional entities

We also have experience working with contractors and the CSLB on licensing issues.

Miller Morton has the experience and strategic focus to guide you through any type of construction-related transaction or relationship, with our number one priority being to protect your interests in the process.
