Preventative action in your construction projects could mean the difference between success and failure!

Protect Your Construction Project from the Worst-Case Scenario:
A Checklist of Sound Legal Advice to Avoid Disputes and Lawsuits

 Thursday, November 10, 2011   •   1:00 – 2:30 PM EST

Presented by:

Lori Samet Schwarz and Eric Morgenweck
Zetlin & De Chiara LLP

Perhaps someday, the construction industry will be known for projects that run like clockwork – with design professionals, contractors, owners, developers, and other parties happily celebrating on-time and under budget completion. Until then, it is necessary for all participants to understand how best to avoid the very real potential hazards they face during the building process.

This 90–minute webinar explores real-world examples of the pitfalls lurking on any construction project, and how those challenges (a) were eventually resolved and (b) could have been avoided in the first place. Join us to gain a valuable perspective on:

  • Why proper records are essential for claims and disputes
  • How to use notice requirements to your advantage
  • Lien strategies that could mean the difference between profit and loss
  • Best uses of termination clauses
  • Dispute resolution techniques that will save your organization big bucks
  • And much, much more!

You’ll leave with a clear understanding of the types of potential claims you should prepare for, and the preventative actions that could mean the difference between your project’s success and failure.

In addition, a 10-to-15 minute period has been reserved at the end of the speaker's presentation for an interactive question-and-answer session so you can discuss specific issues or gain additional knowledge about topics discussed. To register now, make your selection, below.
