Working Abroad? Learn How To Recoup Acceleration Damages In 20 Countries

Register now for this 90-minute audio session in which our expert speaker, James G. Zack, Jr., will reveal the potential avenues to recovery available to U.S. contractors working in 20 countries around the world.

Constructive acceleration is a common construction claim in the United States. Contractors use it to seek remedy when a project owner refuses to recognize delay. But what happens when U.S. contractors face such damages on jobs outside the U.S.? While most international jurisdictions don’t recognize constructive acceleration claims by name, they do offer alternate avenues to recovery.

In this 90-minute program, you will learn to:

  • Perfect a constructive acceleration claim under U.S. law
  • Recover when faced with a constructive acceleration situation in non-U.S. jurisdictions
  • Recognize the common themes supporting alternative legal theories around the globe
  • Reserve your rights and successfully prosecute constructive acceleration claims worldwide
  • Identify the potential for claim recovery in these countries:

Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Malaysia, Oman, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Trinidad and Tobago, United Arab Emirates; and the United Kingdom.

This presentation is appropriate for contractors, subcontractors, and design professionals working on international projects, as well as the legal counsel who advise them.

This audio event will delve into the issues surrounding a constructive acceleration situation when working internationally. After attending, you will understand the history of constructive acceleration in the U.S., know the 6 elements of proof necessary to recovery, and be able to employ alternate avenues to recovery when working abroad.
