Aaron Silberman Speaker: “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do: Termination of California Construction Contracts”
On October 5, Aaron Silberman will present a webinar for the California Lawyers Association. “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do: Termination of California Construction Contracts” will discuss all of the major issues that owners and contractors face regarding contract terminations on California construction contracts.
The agenda will cover 1) Drafting and negotiating contract termination provisions; 2) Deciding if, how and when to terminate during performance; and 3) The mechanics, considerations and consequences of termination. We’ll introduce the different types of termination clauses, and, for each, discuss the most common issues, examples and considerations and tips, both in the context of owner-prime agreements and prime-subcontractor agreements. The focus will be on the two most common types of contract terminations: those for default/cause and those for convenience/no cause; we will also cover cancellations and terminations by the contractor.
