Event Description:

This interactive session will cover lessons learned from a variety of construction defect cases, from the perspectives of both owner and contractor.  The seminar will focus on what constitutes a construction defect, and the immediate steps to take when one arises.  We will further explore best practices in contract negotiation to ensure that the risk of liability is carried by someone else.  Finally, the session will address the damages recoverable for defects, and the common defenses raised against them.  Our presentation will center on real life examples that we’ve encountered on various cases, with the goal of imparting practical lessons for the future.
