This book combines legal considerations with typical engineering practice to answer the questions of today's practicing engineer. Allen draws upon his years of professional experience as a lawyer and a civil engineer to provide simple, straightforward techniques that can be used by consulting engineers.

Topics include:

  • avoiding disputes at their inception;
  • how and when conflicts can be resolved on-site;
  • formal resolution techniques for when problems expand outside the client and engineer's control and require the services of legal counsel;
  • contract negotiations;
  • design;
  • funding management; specification and drawing preparation; and
  • construction administration.

This book will provide practicing enginers with a rich collection of facts, tips, and recommendations on how to best approach on-site dispute situations.
