  • Surety issues

This all-in-one resource guides you through every type and aspect of change claims, offering hands-on guidance and analysis from 25 experienced practitioners. Construction Change Order Claims helps you quickly answer difficult questions such as:

  • Is a change order on a construction project an “extra”—or is it included within the scope of the basic contract price?
  • When does an owner’s unintentional interference cross the line between a mere impairment or hindrance to an alteration of the contractor’s intended methods of performance?
  • What specific circumstances support the use of the cardinal change doctrine?
  • What circumstances must be present to employ the Percentage of Completion accounting method?

Construction Change Order Claims delivers:

  • Innovative defenses to avoid being bound by a release
