1.5 CES LUs
Long & Levit’s recent study of pre-claim and litigation matters against A/E professionals reflects that more than 80% of conflicts stem from the construction phase. Closer analysis of these claims reveals red flags from the contractor, developer, and/or owner that preceded the conflict. This presentation will address how to avoid these conflicts, how to manage potential conflicts before they escalate, and how to mitigate the effect of conflicts on the overall project and/or a future claim. This presentation will provide practical tips for A/E professionals working in the field with the aim of decreasing the potential for claims.
