Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Malaysia, Oman, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates; and the United Kingdom.
This presentation is appropriate for contractors, subcontractors, and design professionals working on international projects, as well as the legal counsel who advise them.
This audio event will delve into the issues surrounding a constructive acceleration situation when working internationally. After attending, you will understand the history of constructive acceleration in the U.S., know the 6 elements of proof necessary to recovery, and be able to employ alternate avenues to recovery when working abroad.
