Expand Your Construction Contract Knowledge

Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 24 – 25, 2021

Time: 3:00PM - 5:00PM (Eastern), 12:00PM - 2:00PM (Pacific)

In this course, you will gain an attorney’s view of how risks can be avoided with specific contract language that will minimize your company’s liability exposure. Learn about various case dispute situations and how the contract clauses respond to real-case examples plus best practice approaches to manage the circumstances. Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with the instructors on sample construction project scenarios and determine potential consequences as a result of the contract definition and legal requirements.

Learning Objectives:
After this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand how risks can be created and avoided by specific—and sometimes overlooked—contract language.
  • Learn how to spot contract language that increases your company’s liability risk, and how to negotiate provisions that minimize your risk and apportion liability fairly among parties.
  • Gain best practices on how to use your company counsel more effectively in preparing to negotiate difficult contract clauses.
