The “contract” is the foundation of virtually every relationship in the construction industry. “Contract interpretation” is the process of determining what the parties agreed to in their contract. It involves deciding the meaning of words, filling in gaps and resolving conflicts. The more familiar you are with the basic rules of contract interpretation, the better your chances of avoiding the numerous problems that frequently arise during the negotiation and performance of construction contracts. Interpreting the contract is explained in Chapter 5 of Common Sense Construction Law.

I have the highest regard for Mr. Heady. He represented a co-defendant in a complex construction case in which I represented another co-defendant. He was an important member of our defense team, whose involvement was critical in advancing the litigation to an amicable settlement without running up costs for his client or other litigants. Mr. Heady was always professional, very well prepared, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

It's one thing to meet expectations - quite another to exceed them. That is what Sarah Carson in Smith Currie's Charlotte office provided. To say I "went against the grain" would be an understatement - construction lawyers are to be back slapping men that only fear their next fishing opportunity. But Sarah brought something different. A type of stubborn know how with I'm not taking prisoners approach. Which, I hate to say, is just what we needed.
