Michael S. Zicherman and Peter E. Moran, partners in the firms’ New Jersey office, authored the US Chapter from the Second Edition of Construction Law & Practice, published by Thompson Reuters’s Sweet & Maxwell International Series. The chapter provides more than 50 FAQ responses about key issues regarding the nature of the construction industry in the US; applicable laws affecting the construction industry; construction procurement, contracting, and performance issues; as well as dispute resolution. The purpose of the chapter is not to provide an in-depth analysis or to address every possible situation, but rather is intended to provide a general overview to assist readers in understanding the construction sector in the US.
The chapter is republished courtesy of Sweet & Maxwell. The full book, with responses from other international jurisdictions, is available for purchase through Sweet & Maxwell’s website – http://www.sweetandmaxwell.co.uk/.
