    Construction Law

    The construction industry is not immune to the challenges and opportunities that confront other sectors of the economy. There is constantly changing technology and the cyber risks that come with it. There is the changing climate and the need to take that into consideration, both in design and in construction. Public•private partnerships, and the claims that can flow from them, are a relatively new part of the evolving landscape. Women- and minority-owned businesses and the issues that they face in the industry remain at the forefront. All attendees—construction professionals, attorneys, and claims professionals—will benefit from this forward-looking program as we kick off this next decade.
