Contractors often respond with allegations of "concurrent delay" when owners impose liquidated damages at the end of a delayed project. Contractors tend to allege that the project delay was either caused by the owner or due to an external force. Justifying that they were concurrent with the contractor's delay, they claim that liquidated damages be forgiven or excused.
However, often, a contractor's claim of concurrent delay is not submitted until the project is complete because owners generally do not impose liquidated damages until the end of the project. This webinar by expert speakers, Emily Federico & James G. Zack, Jr., explores mechanisms based on recent court rulings that owners can employ to defeat a contractor's "concurrent delay defense".
You will understand the true meaning of 'Concurrent delay' and know the background of the concurrent delay doctrine in U.S. law. This session will also explore two recent federal and state cases which will provide a fresh outlook to owners on defending themselves. Plus, both owners and contractors will get practical advice to deal with concurrent delay issues.
