Managing Risk and Disputes in Construction Projects (Breakfast Session)

Risk is a key feature of every construction project. The essence of the ability to reduce the frequency and severity of claims is the identification of these construction project risk factors and dealing with them and/or providing for them in the construction and design contracts and in the administration of these contracts. Having contractual provisions and strategies in place for how to handle risks and/or disputes if they do arise, is a key component of a successful project.

This seminar will provide some practical advice on how to manage risks and strategies for dealing with disputes.
