Learn from a lawyer without all the legalese. 

Hi, I'm Eliot Wagonheim.

For more than 30 years as a construction lawyer, clients have sought my help to get paid, defend backcharges, fight claims for liquidated damages, and prevent termination. And when a particularly confusing contract term came up, I’d get a call.

For years I have steadily reviewed contracts and educated clients on the negotiating points, deal-breakers, nice-to-haves and need-to-haves on projects ranging from $25,000 to $90,000,000.  

Working one-to-one with clients is great and I enjoy it, but I know that not every company has the budget in place to retain my services (or any lawyers) as often as they would like. I’ve noticed that if organizations can develop a solid foundation of contract terms and regulations, they can move forward lawyer-free with confidence.

I believe in empowering these organizations to understand the contracts you are being presented with day-in-and-day-out, before you run into a major issue that puts your entire company at risk. That is what The Construction Contracts Negotiation Course is all about. Seats are limited to ensure personal attention is given to each attendee. Click the button below to save your seat today.
