Mark Roe and Gurmukh Riyat of Pinsent Masons look at the potential issues raised from construction contracts with states and state agencies and explore what steps contractors can take to protect themselves in the event that things go wrong: "A good rule of thumb for a contractor entering into a construction contract with a state entity is 'test it backwards'.
