Attorney for Residential Contract Agreements

Often, there are fewer stakeholders in residential construction, but that’s not always the case in larger, multi-family projects.

For residential projects, it’s essential to have an ironclad agreement that protects you should someone change their mind halfway through construction, make drastic changes during the build, or otherwise endanger the building of their own home.

Patout, Law, & Shaw can draft custom or boiler-plate agreements that do just that. Build your business on a strong foundation–contact us for your contract needs.

Attorney for Commercial Contract Agreements

Commercial construction contracts are often more complicated than residential contracts. More stakeholders, regulations, and professionals are involved in these projects.

That means complex contracts, and Patout, Law, & Shaw’s team of detail-focused attorneys can help draft contracts that protect you, no matter what part of the process you’re responsible for.

Our experience with custom contracts and construction in general also means that we’re used to negotiating with multiple stakeholders and understanding the shifting dynamics of commercial construction projects.
