The 10 Most Commonly Overlooked Considerations in Preparing for an Epic Construction Arbitration Encounter
Washington, DC (Vocus) September 3, 2010
An upcoming WPL Publishing webinar is expected to help construction managers, architects, engineers, and others learn how to best prepare for construction arbitration.
When projects run into obstacles, cooperation of all parties to get the project completed as planned is the best course. However, when problems occur -- change orders, defects, delays, etc. -- stakes are high for all parties. The webinar, scheduled for Sept. 23 at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), will provide guidance on how to get the most out of arbitration.

Webinar attendees will come away with practical strategies to enhance their likelihood of success in effectively arbitrating a large, complex construction case. They will learn how to overcome the following 10 often-overlooked considerations for arbitration:
Temporal -- How to allocate time effectively -- plan duration.
Judicial -- Arbitrator selection -- what elements to consider -- reputation and availability for duration.
Logistical -- The importance of transportation, lodgings, and support.
Spatial -- The room setup -- size and configuration -- why it matters.
Mechanical -- Technology can make a difference.
Tactical -- Focus -- how to maintain it -- lead lawyer selection -- a critical contributor to success.
Logical -- Best practices in presenting evidence.
Educational -- Cognitive learning predilections and how to use them for an advantage.
Psychological -- How personality types impact outcomes.
Spiritual -- Retaining sanity -- both for the webinar attendee and for everyone else involved.
Addressing the attendees will be Randall Erickson, a senior partner in Crowell & Moring’s Irvine, Calif., office. He has more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry, specializing in construction claims and construction defect disputes, public contracts, bid disputes, labor law issues, real estate development, and related environment concerns. He has represented clients in arbitrations, trials, and mediations.
After the presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
