Construction Law

Construction Law
The construction industry is not immune to the challenges and opportunities that confront other sectors of the economy. There is constantly changing technology and the cyber risks that come with it. There is the changing climate and the need to take that into consideration, both in design and in construction. Public•private partnerships, and the claims that can flow from them, are a relatively new part of the evolving landscape. Women- and minority-owned businesses and the issues that they face in the industry remain at the forefront. All attendees—construction professionals, attorneys, and claims professionals—will benefit from this forward-looking program as we kick off this next decade.

Most construction cases lack the excitement of a personal injury case. Construction attorneys have difficult challenges capturing the attention of jurors when presenting a case. The Construction Law and Litigation Skills Committees, in conjunction with the annual seminar, are offering a skills workshop that will assist the trial practitioner in personalizing the typical construction law case for a jury. In addition to presentations by experienced and nationally recognized trial attorneys about developing themes and presenting them to juries, this year’s workshop will allow attendees to present opening and closing arguments, in small group sessions, with feedback from attorneys with construction trial experience. Given the goal of this hands-on workshop focused on communicating themes to a jury in complex construction cases, attorneys who practice in the construction law field—from a single case to a primary concentration in construction law—will benefit most from this workshop. This workshop will benefit young lawyers, lawyers new to the practice of construction law and any attorney looking to enhance or refine his or her skills as a construction litigator. Space is limited and spots will go fast!
