Upcoming WPL Webinar to Focus on Negotiation Techniques for Construction Contracts

Share Article

The interactive event is suited for various professionals in the construction community, including contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, construction managers, and public and private owners.

Later this month, WPL Publishing will sponsor a webinar entitled “Construction Contract Negotiation Techniques: Key Strategies to Reduce Risk.”

Preparation of a comprehensive construction contract is the best protection against time-consuming and costly construction claims and disputes. Construction projects succeed or fail as a direct result of terms and conditions in the contract. Parties to the contract -- including owners, contractors, construction managers, and subcontractors -- each have distinct and often conflicting interests in the form and substance of a contract. The webinar will help attendees better understand and evaluate the risks associated with the commercial terms and conditions typically found in all construction contracts. To register for the 90-minute event, scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), visit http://tinyurl.com/65wn6o7.

The webinar is designed to help attendees do the following:

  • Use key contract clauses and modifications to reduce risk.
  • Understand lump-sum, cost-plus, and guaranteed-maximum-price contracts.
  • Identify key issues in change orders, delay claims, and insurance.
  • Review dispute-resolution clauses.

Addressing attendees will be Ira Schulman, a partner in the Construction Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton LLP. He has more than 30 years of experience in all aspects of construction law with an emphasis on all forms of dispute resolution and contract negotiation. He has tried numerous complex construction disputes in jury and bench trials in state and federal courts and before arbitration panels. He also has participated in several mediations and has successfully represented clients with construction contract award issues before various city agencies. Additionally, Mr. Schulman has an active transactional practice and is regularly called upon by owners and contractors to draft construction contracts and agreements.

Following Mr. Schulman’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.

Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/65wn6o7.
