Management of Legal Exposures



Every project participant makes decisions that have potential legal ramifications and resultant additional costs. This workshop, with an attorney and claims consultant as instructors, will show participants how early knowledge of potential problems is the price of success.


Learning Objectives 

  • Review of potential legal issues which may result from missteps.
  • Review case law examples, which will serve as foundation for explanation of a variety of construction related issues.
  • Discuss the importance of considering legal hurdles before making decisions, issuing RFI's, making promises or demanding compliance.
  • Raise the level of knowledge of all attendees to enable their subsequent identification of legal problems before the damage is done.
