Why You Should Attend

PLI has proudly joined forces with Program Co-Chairs Josh M. Leavitt, Heidi Hennig Rowe, and George J. Meyer to develop this comprehensive legal course on infrastructure and large construction project planning and implementation.  This powerhouse team has recruited several of the most respected and successful construction and real estate lawyers as well as other impressively credentialed industry insiders to prepare detailed lesson plans specifically for PLI attendees—designed to bolster your skills and understanding of successful contracting, financing, and project management strategies in the construction and infrastructure development space. 

First, this program will show you how to assemble the right team for your construction project.  To paraphrase an old saying: If you want a happy and successful project, you must have a happy and competent team.  Next, attendees will learn battle-tested negotiation and contracting drafting tips, how to avoid common mistakes with significant consequences, and everyday practice skills.

Then, we will examine progress and outfalls under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (“IIJA”), followed by a discussion of the pros and cons of different insurance products such as Wraps (OCIP’s and CCIP’s), project-specific programs, subcontractor default insurance, Builder’s Risk insurance, umbrella coverage (including OPPI/CPPI insurance products), along with bonding issues related to public projects. Finally, we will guide you through the process of deciding on and obtaining public and private funding, including tax and regulatory considerations.

What You Will Learn

After completing this program, participants will have critical insights into how to:

  • Partner with clients to navigate complex construction funding processes under the IIJA and examine progress under the IIJA one year later
  • Advise clients on putting together the right insurance program for large-scale infrastructure projects
  • Negotiate and draft successful contracts for large construction projects that avoid the common pitfalls
  • Build successful project teams from the perspectives of the Owner, Designer, and Contractor
  • Identify state and local resources as well as private capital for debt and equity funding under the IIJA, the CHIPS Act and the energy saving programs under the Inflation Reduction Act

Construction and real estate development attorneys including outside counsel, in-house attorneys, construction contract procurement professionals, and government agency officers working in the construction and infrastructure space will benefit from this program.
