In today’s fast-paced environment, issues can arise during design and construction that affect building projects, including cost overruns, delays, or errors. They can influence the project’s success and ultimately result in litigation. In these instances, expert consultants often work with attorneys and their clients to evaluate claims, provide expert testimony, and explain technical matters to triers of fact. In this discussion, our diverse team of panelists – including expert consultants and attorneys representing design professionals and contractors – will explore some of the common situations that architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) team members encounter. Panelists will also provide insight on how to mitigate these situations and examine the litigation process, focusing on the various roles attorneys and expert consultants play to achieve resolution.

After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
*Understand the roles of attorneys and expert consultants in construction litigation matters.
*Identify potential risks that may lead to delays, errors, or unsafe conditions that ultimately result in construction litigation.
*Recognize mitigation and safety measures that may help control the risk of litigation and ensure a healthy construction environment.
*Discuss the role of the expert consultant on construction litigation matters in determining if and how codes, regulations, life safety measures, and other criteria apply to a specific project.
