Contracts for the Cross-Border Lawyer: Canada and the United States is a 4-volume collection of leading Canadian and U.S. cases and other materials I edited for use by students in my class, "Canadian & U.S. Contracts." The class is a two-semester, 6-credit course that is required of all students in the Dual J.D. program jointly offered by the University of Windsor Faculty of Law and the University of Detroit Mercy Law School.
In 2019, the International Chamber of Commerce Commission on Arbitration and ADR updated its influential Final Report on Construction Industry Arbitrations. John Hinchey and I were asked to review a draft of the Final Report and subsequently published a summary of the major changes: "ICC Issues New Guidelines for Arbitrating International Construction Disputes."
Ontario recently adopted significant changes to its Construction Act, many of which are under consideration for adotpion elsewhere in Canada. A number of U.S. contractors have operations in Canada, so my article, Know Before You Go: What U.S. Lawyers Should Know About Ontario's New Construction Act describes some of the key differences between Canadian and U.S. law on the subject.
One of my works-in-progress is a treatise on construction law in the State of Michigan. Rather than waiting until the entire volume is complete, I am publishing the chapters as stand-alone practice guides. So far, I have completed Michigan Construction Law, Practice Guide No. 1: Commercial General Liability Insurance (2018) and Michigan Construction Law, Practice Guide No. 2: Property Insurance (2018).
How U.S. lawyers think about the resolution of construction disputes sometimes differs from how lawyers elsewhere approach the subject, so I have two pieces that highlight the way things tend to be done in the U.S. The first is a chapter ("Construction Disputes under U.S. Law") in International Arbitration in the United States (2018). The second is an article I co-authored with Donald G. Gavin, "ADR in Construction--United States of America" (2018).
