Share Article

The interactive webinar will spell out for attendees the types of potential claims they should prepare for and the preventative actions that could determine whether their projects succeed or fail.

WPL Publishing soon will host a webinar to help construction professionals protect their projects from a worst-case scenario, arming them with sound legal advice to avoid disputes and lawsuits.

In today’s construction climate, it is necessary for design professionals, contractors, owners, developers, and other participants in a project to understand how best to avoid the very real potential hazards they face during the building process. The webinar, entitled “Protecting a Construction Project from the Worst-Case Scenario: A Checklist of Sound Legal Advice to Avoid Disputes and Lawsuits,” is designed to help construction professionals reach this goal. To register for the 90-minute event, which is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. EST, visit http://tinyurl.com/3ja6r77.

This webinar explores real-world examples of the pitfalls lurking on any construction project as well as how those challenges were eventually resolved and could have been avoided in the first place. Attendees of the event will gain an understanding of the following:

  • Why proper records are essential for claims and disputes.
  • How they can use notice requirements to their advantage.
  • Lien strategies that could mean the difference between profit and loss.
  • Best uses of termination clauses.
  • Dispute-resolution techniques that can save their organizations a significant amount of money.

Addressing webinar attendees will be Lori Samet Schwarz, a partner of Zetlin & De Chiara, and Eric Morgenweck, an associate principal for the New York City-headquartered construction law firm.

Ms. Schwarz focuses her practice on litigation, arbitration, and mediation of construction claims in state and federal court through the American Arbitration Association and private mediation. She regularly consults with clients on risk-management and construction-contracting issues and has an extensive background in general commercial litigation. She represents architects, engineers, construction managers, sureties, and developers in various construction-related matters, including contract disputes, delay claims, design defects, and worksite accidents.

Mr. Morgenweck focuses his practice on prosecuting and defending complex construction disputes involving design errors, delay claims, consequential damage claims, surety bond claims, mechanic’s lien and trust-fund issues, insurance-coverage disputes, and general contract matters. He negotiates and drafts construction contracts and corporate agreements for owners, developers, architects, engineers, and contractors.

Following their presentations, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
