Construction Super Conference – “Success and Failure in Mega Projects Through the Lens of Trial Lawyers and In-House General Counsel”
Bruce D. Meller and Peter E. Moran, partners in P&A’s New Jersey office, will participate in the panel, “Success and Failure in Mega Projects Through the Lens of Trial Lawyers and In-House General Counsel,” at the 36th annual Construction Super Conference. This panel will cover the inevitability of construction claims involved in billion-dollar+ projects and how disputes have been (a) prevented but (b) can also escalate into multi-million dollar litigation – and how even those scenarios can have “successful” outcomes. During this session, attendees will:
- Deepen their understanding of the highly competitive procurement process; how contractors’ decisions during the process impact their experience over the life of the project; how security concerns impact bid preparation and pricing; the elements that contribute to success, and the pitfalls to avoid, during the procurement phase.
- Gain insight on mega projects, as well as multiple simultaneous projects, impact contractors’ flexibility, management of specialty trades, scheduling, and material supply, among other capacity issues. Attendees will come away with strategies to manage numerous legal/claims issues and other concerns before they arise.
- Discuss the panels’ experience with the types and complexity of claims in connection with mega projects, including time and cost overruns, project delay/acceleration, performance-related claims, change orders, design defects, force majeure, and techniques for proper claims management.
The panel will take place on Thursday, December 8, from 8:30am to 9:45am PT at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
