Event Description

Mitigate—Or Avoid—These 8 New Construction Contracting Risks

Register now for this 90-minute audio session in which our expert speaker, James G. Zack, Jr., will analyze several growing trends in construction claims—including the decline in dispute values, decisions that limit damage recovery , increased use of False Claim allegations, and a slew of new claim types.

The recent economic recession saw the number of construction firms and projects decline, while the number of claims rose. “Claimsmanship” is proliferating, and it has the potential to substantially impact the field of construction claims.

This 90-minute program will show you how to mitigate—or avoid—the negative impacts of current developments, such as:

  • Devalued construction claims
  • Lengthier resolution times
  • Limited damages for: delays, suspensions, home office overhead, and differing conditions
  • Increased use of False Claims Acts to ward off claims
  • Constructive claims
  • “Underinspection” claims
  • “Equipment lost productivity”
  • “Expanded” general conditions claims

This presentation is appropriate for project owners, contractors and subcontractors, construction managers, design professionals, and legal counsel advising construction industry clients.

After attending this audio event, you will understand the most common causes of claims, how courts will limit contractor’s recovery, four new types of claims contractors are asserting—and how to avoid these new risks on your next project.
