Florida’s construction industry continues to move at an animated pace. This activity brings increased pressure on owners/developers, design professionals, contractors, subcontractors and their respective counsel. Construction professionals must continue to strive towards understanding and properly allocating risk.
Reaching this ambitious goal requires a clear understanding of these key issues: the variety of industry-standard contract forms (including how to choose the right form and how those forms allocate major risks); insurance products and how they relate to the allocation of risks; administration of contracts and management of issues that arise during the course of a construction project; performance and payment bonds and surety conventions employed when a project sours; and dispute resolution procedures. This seminar will be instructed by seasoned construction attorneys and experienced industry professionals. By attending, you will learn about industry trends, including what to avoid and what to embrace. While success in construction cannot be guaranteed, knowing what to do – and when to do it – certainly increases the likelihood.
