Compliance is Key for Nevada Construction Contracts

Navigating Nevada law can be an interesting undertaking for those not experienced with the unique laws of the state. This can be especially true for those attempting to move forward with a construction project in Nevada due to the many distinctive state laws that apply to construction contracts. There is currently a great deal of construction work coming to Nevada from companies around the country and the world that do not have experience building in Nevada, making this issue more important than ever.

When beginning a construction project in Nevada, it should be clear that standard form construction contracts, or even custom contracts developed and used in other states, simply will not comply with Nevada law.  Therefore, those contracts will need to be modified to be in compliance with Nevada law.
