What It's About:
It's virtually impossible to complete a construction project of any size without a few disputes developing. Most are minor, but some may be of more importance involving greater amounts of money. How well you're prepared to handle disputes may very well determine whether you'll make a profit. Litigating construction cases are extremely expensive—even the smallest with the most cost-conscious legal counsel can run $300,000, often forcing contractors and owners to settle meritorious claims not based on entitlement, but because of attorneys’ fees. You will hear from a speaker experienced with Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) procedures for construction projects and learn about ADR benefits and how to incorporate ADR provisions in your contracts.
