In this course, attendees will gain a legal perspective of how risks can be avoided with specific contract language to help minimize a company’s liability exposure. Various case dispute situations, how contract clauses respond to real case examples, and best practice approaches to manage the circumstances will be addressed. Attendees will also collaborate with the instructors on sample construction project scenarios and determine potential consequences of contract definitions and legal requirements.
After this session, attendees will be able to:
- Have a deeper understanding of significant contract subjects
- Acquire a bank of sample language to use in negotiating owner-contractor and contractor-subcontractor contracts
- Understand how risks can be created and avoided by specific, and sometimes overlooked, contract language
- Learn how to spot contract language that increases a company’s liability risk and how to negotiate provisions that minimize risk and apportion liability fairly among parties
- Gain best practices on how to use a company’s counsel more effectively in preparing to negotiate difficult contract clauses
