Construction Law: Ultimate Bootcamp


Re-Broadcast on July 28, 2017

Construction projects present many challenges. From the time of contracting through project completion (and beyond), these challenges often jeopardize finishing a project on time and within budget, and can result in significant losses to those involved.

In this webinar, we will discuss best practices for negotiating contracts to minimize or avoid liability from claims, how to effectively recognize and manage risk, and how to deal with deficient plans and specifications including the resulting delays often associated with them. We will also discuss effective ways to address non-payment issues that arise during and after construction.

This course is co-sponsored by the Palm Beach County Bar Association.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Key Contract Terms
  • Managing Risk
  • Design Deficiencies
  • Changes and Delays
  • Remedies for Non-Payment

Additionally, some states allow for credit to be granted on a 1:1 reciprocal basis for courses approved in another mandatory CLE jurisdiction state. This is known as a reciprocity provision and includes the following states: AK, AR, CO, FL, ME, MT, ND, NH, NJ, NY, PR, and SD. myLawCLE does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars or teleconferences in these states.
