Sherman & Howard Attorney Stephen Hess Principal Editor of the American Bar Association’s Textbook, Construction Law

August 22, 2019 – Sherman & Howard Member Stephen Hess is a principal editor of the American Bar Association’s newly updated treatise Construction Law, Second Edition. An answer to the pressing need for a comprehensive law school textbook, it provides a complete orientation to the construction industry, its processes, and the law that governs construction contracts and projects.

Construction Law, Second Edition examines the roles of the various participants in the construction process and the vocabulary essential to understanding its cases and legal principles. The book’s logical development chronologically tracks the construction process, helping students prepare for construction law positions and providing a useful reference book for practicing lawyers.

Stephen Hess also wrote the book’s chapter examining construction contract pricing, and he teamed up with Sherman & Howard Associate Allison Mikulecky to update the chapter on damages arising in the construction setting.
