American Institute of Architects (AIA) Contracts
In larger commercial projects, the AIA requires certain specialized contracts. Essentially, the contracts consist of lists of terms and conditions. They can be around 200 pages long and are typically meant to protect architects from liability. Although these contracts follow a fairly standard form, they are among the most complex documents in construction law. We represent architects, architectural firms, landowners and contractors in analyzing and negotiating AIA contracts.
