The Problem: Contractors and consultants enter into contracts, with clients and sub-contractors, that are the heart and soul of their business. Everyone knows that you should not sign a contract without having a lawyer review it, and an environmental contract should probably be reviewed by an environmental lawyer. Typically, however, only large contractors and consultants (with revenues exceeding $5 million) hire inside or outside counsel to review or draft their contracts. The result? Many small environmental contractors are operating under contracts that are drafted unfavorably from their point of view, or may lack standard risk allocation provisions.
The Solution: EIA’s environmental lawyers can review your contracts for legal sufficiency and for how well they protect you. We can recommend changes in the language of contracts offered to you or can provide you with contracts that you can offer to other parties. In most instances, there will be no charge for such services.
