Building off the successful Construction Contract 101 series, this advanced program will provide participants, through the use of a series of case studies, simulations and discussions, with an in-depth roadmap to the key clauses that every design and construction practitioner should understand and know when drafting and documenting a complex construction project. Concentrating on providing remedies to advanced design and construction issues that plague every complex project, the panel will provide key industry insight as to the best practices for negotiating against surprises—all presented from the specialized perspective of owners, developers, design professionals, primes, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors, legal advisors and others.
The panel will explain how to identify and understand risks. We will also take a closer look at how to successfully draft and negotiate general conditions for construction from each perspective, as well as transition issues for design professionals and contractors during an ongoing project in terms of liability for prior work, indemnity/hold harmless from use/modifications of old plans, and inspections conducted prior to transitions. The program will wrap up with an update on the current legal trends, recent touchstone decisions, and coming legal challenges affecting the construction industry and its related counterparts, and how to best tackle these challenges when you come up against them in your practice.
Who should attend? This seminar would be practical and useful for anyone who prepares contracts for owners, design, architectural, contractors, CMs or subcontractors, or who litigates construction claims, especially within a setting of large and complex construction projects.
