This 90-minute webinar looks at the importance of clear, reasonable and coordinated contractual provisions and analyze non-standard professional services agreements as well as significant changes to AIA documents. Real-world examples are discussed including the negotiations needed to meet client needs while avoiding unreasonable risk.
