Peckar & Abramson is pleased to announce that three of its lawyers, Richard Robinson, Levi Barrett and Sean Ryan, resident in the firm’s New York office, authored a chapter in the American Bar Association’s (ABA) newly released book, The 2017 A201 Deskbook. Peckar & Abramson’s lawyers authored the chapter dealing with Article 3 – Contractor, where many of the contractor’s significant responsibilities and obligations are described, including those relating to review of contract documents, permits, submittals, warranty, site conditions, intellectual property and indemnification. As the ABA has noted:

“American Institute of Architects (AIA) has completed a total reexamination of its core contracts and issued a new form A201 General Conditions of the Contract for Construction. The A201 is the most frequently used document of all construction agreements, and virtually all AIA contracts are intended to work with it. To help construction lawyers understand and work with the sweeping changes of these widely used general conditions, The 2017 A201 Deskbook identifies and analyzes every significant change made to the A201 document, and also includes for the first time a section-by-section critical analysis of the A201, with case law interpretations and practice tips.”
