New Orleans Green Building Litigation Attorney

When parties agree to build “green,” a complex and untested round of contract negotiations begins, and these negotiations have potentially severe consequences. Because building green has become prevalent, it is important to speak with a New Orleans green building litigation attorney who can guide you through contracts and other green negotiations.

While “green building” is gaining steam across the nation, green building contracts have yet to be seriously contested or litigated in the courts. Unfortunately, this means parties to a green building project must be extra-careful that their contract adequate outlines their agreement.

The traditional form contracts distributed by the AIA or ConsensusDOCS organizations fail to address green building trends and issues, and so parties to a green building contract would be prudent to hire counsel to draft provisions to lay out the green building agreement.
