Who’s the Designer? Recognizing and Mitigating Design Risk in Construction Contracts
Peckar and Abramson Partners Michael C. Zisa and Levi W. Barrett will present “Who’s the Designer? Recognizing and Mitigating Design Risk in Construction Contracts” at the NASBP webinar on September 15 from 2 – 3pm ET. The Spearin doctrine is a well-established, long-standing foundation of the construction industry holding that an owner impliedly warrants the information, plans and specifications it provides to a general contractor. This bedrock, however, can be eroded shifting design liability to often unsuspecting contractors and their sureties. This presentation will discuss how risks can be shifted and ways to protect contractors from inappropriately assuming design liability. More information and the link to register can be found here.
