Smith Haughey presents “Key Legal Issues for the Construction Industry”

A free event for design professionals, contractors, and sub-contractors.

Part 1: Mock Arbitration – “So you think your case is a sure winner?”

Practical problems routinely arise throughout the construction process.  And it’s not uncommon for a seemingly small issue to evolve into a large problem during arbitration.

During this program, you’ll witness how “small issues” play out in a real arbitration.  You’ll observe two top construction litigators tackle real life construction issues, cross-examine the owner, contractor, and experts, and dissect construction documents under the watch of an arbitrator.  Then judge the parties’ claims as you see fit.

Part 2:  Roundtable Discussions

  • Contractors’ obligations under the Michigan Builders Trust Fund
  • Construction liens
  • Top 10 contract clauses
  • Indemnification
  • Employment law
  • Alternative dispute resolution provisions in construction contracts.
