Are you unknowingly assuming more liability than you could be?

Register now for this 60-minute audio session in which our expert speaker, Scott P. Pence, will explorethe mechanisms by which parties allocate the risk associated with a construction project.

Potential risk and liability lies around every corner of a construction project, and unknowingly assuming that risk—or failing to adequately address it—in your contracts can put you in harm’s way. Failure to properly recognize, assess, and/or allocate risks can lead to time-consuming and expensive disputes—and ultimately saddle you with liability that could put you out of business. But you can mitigate your exposure and better protect yourself by employing common contract mechanisms for allocating risk.

In this program, you will learn how to:

  • Identify the key construction provisions that appear (or should appear) in almost every construction contract
  • Understand the allocation of risk and liability within those key contract provisions
  • Apply common negotiating tactics to suggest an equitable allocation of risks and liabilities
  • Understand the link between indemnification provisions and being named as an additional insured
  • Recognize the approach taken with respect to these risk issues in some of the more common industry standard construction contract forms

This presentation is appropriate for attorneys, project owners, developers, construction contractors, design professionals, construction managers, project managers, and consultants.

After attending this audio event, you will have a “big picture” understanding of potential construction contract liability. Plus, you will be better equipped to spot issues, draft sound contracts, and negotiate wisely and effectively.
