Speaker, Practising Law Institute Seminar, "Building Better Construction Contracts 2016," New York, NY
December 16, 2016 | 8:45 AM EST
Negotiating and drafting design and construction contracts that clearly define responsibilities and intelligently allocate risks is an art. The design and construction process is risky and proper risk identification and allocation is critical to the success of any project. This course is designed to give you the tools you need to better negotiate and draft design and construction agreements. You will learn to distinguish between risk allocation clauses, including the so-called “killer clauses,” that work and when to employ them as well as when to avoid them, as they can prove counter-productive in certain situations. Particular emphasis will be placed on the crucial subjects of termination, insurance, and indemnity. This program also will include a mock contract negotiation session with panelists giving the best arguments for and against critical contract provisions. As we have in the past, emphasis will be placed on new technologies such as the use of drones in construction and the legal issues they raise. We also will examine in depth cyber exposures for design and construction professionals and one full hour of ethical issues for design and construction attorneys.
