Construction Contracts: The Boiler Plate That Gives You Fits (November 2014)

On October 24th, James Dash was a featured speaker at the Illinois State Bar Association’s (IBSA) seminar at Northern Illinois University College of Law entitled “Construction Contracts: The Boiler Plate That Gives You Fits.” The seminar addressed common construction contract terms and recurring issues that oft arise in those contracts.  Jim’s segment, “The Devil is in the Details,” focused on the importance of paying attention to detail and included the topics of “pay when/if paid” and “no damage for delay” clauses and delay damages.

Jim’s practice focuses on real estate-related litigation, with an emphasis on construction (including mechanics lien claims), as well as title insurance defense work. Jim’s clients include a number of companies whose businesses are in, or related to, the real estate, title insurance and construction industries. For a list of upcoming ISBA seminars, please visit
