Through the use of case studies, real-world examples, and panel discussions, this program led by a panel of experienced construction and development attorneys will walk participants through an in-depth analysis of the major contracting documents that comprise every construction project: including Owner/Architect agreements, Owner/Contractor agreements and Contractor/Subcontractor agreements. Presented from the specialized perspective of owners, developers, design professionals, primes, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors, legal advisors and others, the panelists will demystify how to quickly identify and understand project risks, highlight the preferred position of each project stakeholder, the best practices for negotiating key provisions favorable to a client’s position, and a proposed real-world resolution. This program will wrap up with an update on the current legal trends, recent decisions, important updates to AIA documents, coming legal challenges affecting the construction industry, and how to resolve these issues in your daily practice.
Who should attend? This seminar would be practical and useful for anyone who drafts design and construction contract documents or who litigates construction claims arising out of a construction project.
