Why You Should Attend
Negotiating and drafting construction contracts is a complex art. Expertly crafted contracts make the difference between timely, profitable projects or massive hits to your client’s bottom line and business reputation. 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 significant changes in construction markets and resulting client expectations in 2021, 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 join with Program Chairs Patrick Miller of Faegre Drinker and Conor Tighe of Turner Construction in 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 navigating critical contract provisions, planning for market changes, and understanding the requirements of government agencies and private developers.
