We’re Going Virtual!

Due to social distancing and large group gathering restrictions, Managing Risk in Construction Contracts & Projects has changed format from a live, in-person event to an interactive, virtual conference.

The conference will follow a similar schedule and agenda as originally planned.

Construction executives and their legal counsel are facing increasingly complex legal risks amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Your ability to identify and mitigate liability in construction projects is more relevant than ever.

Expert speakers will analyze emerging COVID-19 risks and provide practical insights on how to manage them and other complex construction risks.

Hear from and connect with this outstanding line-up of speakers with expertise on everything from contract negotiation to construction insurance, litigation, and conflict resolution, and take away strategies to maximize your projects’ success and limit your liability in today’s climate.
