Why You Should Attend
The difference between an attorney drafting a good construction contract compared to a better contract could mean the difference between millions in potential losses or a successfully run, profitable project and an ongoing, rewarding client relationship. Whether your representation involves privately financed deals or public works projects, one size simply does not fit all. Even the most experienced practitioners must stay abreast of market demands, regulation updates, and recent court decisions in order to best protect clients’ interests.
With infrastructure demands, supply chain disruptions, and DEI dominating 2022, this full-day course will provide critical updates and instruction for those seeking to remain competitive in the commercial construction development space.
PLI is proud to welcome back Program Chairs Patrick Miller of Faegre Drinker and Conor Tighe of Turner Construction, bringing together an exceptional faculty, hailing from some of the most sought-after organizations leading in the contraction field today. Attendees of this program will hone their skills in drafting and negotiating critical contract provisions, planning for market changes, and cost-effective dispute resolution.
