Time is Money: Construction Delay Claims

  • Share:
Name: Time is Money: Construction Delay Claims
Date: March 26, 2020
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EDT
Event Description:


"Time is money." There are few places where that phrase is truer than in construction. A project delivered quickly and on time is an asset that can start generating a return. A delayed project, however, can result in not only lost profits for an owner but can also open the door to delay claims from its contractors.

In this session, Cohen Seglias attorneys Lane Kelman and Matthew Skaroff will explore and explain delay claims between owners and contractors. They will discuss what constitutes a contractor's delay claim, when a contractor can recover, and what damages a contractor may be awarded. The presenters will also share how owners can reduce their risk of exposure, including no damages for delay clauses, liquidated damages, and consequential damages waivers. Finally, this session will cover how owners and contractors can ensure cost recovery when a project is delayed.
