METALCON Live! continues today as CEO of Cotney Law, Trent Cotney, provides contractors with an overview of how to manage legal issues in a post-COVID world. If you are involved on any live of a construction project, you won’t want to miss this important webinar to learn important steps to protect yourself from a dispute. What you learn today could potentially save you thousands or millions tomorrow.
In a 2020 report, Arcadis found that the average construction dispute was valued at $18.8 million in 2019 and took 17.6 months to resolve (Credit: Levelset). Construction law protects parties involved in a construction project including commercial and residential projects. Parties including project owners, general contractors, subcontractors, equipment suppliers, design professionals, project managers, construction lenders and others may all find themselves facing a construction dispute at some point. As a result, parties on either side of a dispute should know how to protect themselves if wrongdoing has been alleged, such as defective construction or breach of contract, but also what to do if they are experiencing construction defects or a party has breached a contract they are a party to.
The pandemic has caused almost all major industries to evolve how they operate. During this program, gain an understanding of material shortages, updates to contracts, and changes to OSHA standards.
