Learn the Claim Elements You Must Demonstrate to Prevail

Like it or not, construction projects are ripe with opportunity for contract parties to disagree, introduce changes, make surprise demands, and generally cause strife. In other words, claims and legal action can feel inevitable. That doesn’t mean you can’t reduce your risks—or at least reduce the pain of disputes.

The first rule of thumb is not to leave disputes to fester until the end of a project. That’s a potentially costly and damaging proposition, say construction industry consultants John Livengood and James G. Zack, Jr. Instead, join them in this live webinar to explore the 11 basic types of construction claims under AIA and other standard contracts, the entitlement and causation elements of each, and how to successfully assert or defend your position.

After attending this instructive session, you will walk away with a number of dispute resolution methodologies to put in your toolbox. You will understand the parameters, burden-of-proof requirements, and claims preparation protocol for common claims—including claims for contract changes, delays and disruption, and contract termination. And you’ll be better prepared to confront claims head on, satisfy the basic requirements for damages, and move quickly toward resolution.

Session Highlights

In this overview presentation, you’ll learn:

  • The “universe of construction claims”—including claims for directed changes, constructive changes, work suspensions, force majeure events, delays, accelerations, differing site conditions, and contract terminations (for convenience and default)
  • How to avoid letting disputes fester and escalate while on the job
  • The basic 3-part test of the construction claim: entitlement, causation, and damages
  • How to prepare and present a construction claim
  • What your burden of proof is for various claim types—for both owners and contractors
  • How to settle or defend against a construction claim
  • Key dispute resolution methodologies
