Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
WPL Publishing soon will sponsor a webinar to help professionals within the construction community understand the pros and cons of various project delivery systems.
Understanding and negotiating construction contracts can be tricky and extremely risky. Potential risk and liability lies around every corner of a construction project, and unknowingly assuming that risk can put a company in harm’s way. If the wrong delivery system is used, or if professionals fail to understand and account for the risks and liabilities they are assuming under their construction contracts, their companies could become involved in timely and expensive disputes and incur liability that puts them out of business. The 90-minute webinar is designed to help construction professionals avoid such problems. To register for the event, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012, at 1:00 (EST), visit http://tinyurl.com/br35qjq.
During the webinar, entitled “Delivery Systems: Understand the Potential Risks and Benefits Associated with Different Delivery Systems,” attendees will learn how to do the following:
- Recognize the more common delivery systems that are available and prevalent in today’s construction industry.
- Identify major liabilities and benefits to each party under each of those delivery systems.
- Become familiar with new and cutting-edge delivery systems that are designed to address the current economic climate.
Addressing attendees will be a pair of attorneys in the Tampa, Fla., office of Carlton Fields, P.A. The practice of one attorney, Lauren Catoe, includes advising clients on the planning and development of large-scale, complex construction projects with a primary focus on contract preparation, review, and negotiation. She represents clients throughout various phases of project design and construction, and assists with project administration and management issues. The other attorney, Scott Pence, practices construction and real estate law. His practice primarily is focused on reviewing, drafting, negotiating, and administering design and construction contracts for both public and private projects, including insurance and other risk-management issues, where he represents owners, developers, contractors, and design professionals.
After their presentations, 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/br35qjq.
