Federal Publications Seminar – Construction Delay, Acceleration and Inefficiency Claims

November 7–8, 2017
, VA

How claims are handled will dictate their ultimate impact on the fortunes of owners, lenders, contractors, subcontractors and sureties. Effectively dealing with them, however, is a difficult task, requiring a concise understanding of the law, of each party’s contractual rights, of the construction process and of claims presentation and defense techniques. Designed specifically to address these issues, this course features an exceptional faculty, including CPMI’s Rob D’Onofrio.

Construction SuperConference

December 4–6, 2017
Las Vegas, NV

We look forward to exhibiting at the 2017 Construction SuperConference featuring impactful plenary sessions and compelling panel discussions from top legal, consulting, and leaders of construction companies bringing to the forefront challenging issues and new insights. Now in its 32nd year, the SuperConference is recognized as the preeminent construction conference developed for mid- to senior-level professionals who work in any of the legal and commercial construction markets.

CPMI’s Robert D’Onofrio will speak about schedule delay analysis as part of a panel discussion. The session, Schedule Delay Insanity and a Path to be Sane, will help attendees learn about the industry standard for schedule delay analysis in the United States. Participants will gain insight from in-house counsel and industry experts about the application of standard guidance to situations that have not yet been addressed by case law, including proportionality of cost payment in acceleration situations and whether a contractor should be granted a time extension for delay to an early completion schedule.

Forum on Construction Law 2018 Midwinter Meeting

37th Annual Construction and Public Contracts Law Seminar

January 17 – 19, 2018
Fort Myers, FL

We look forward to exhibiting as a platinum sponsor of the Midwinter Meeting themed – “Subcontractors, Subconsultants, Suppliers – Oh My! … We Aren’t in Kansas Anymore.”

The Forum on Construction Law’s Midwinter Meeting will focus on a unique journey over the rainbow to the world of subcontractors, subconsultants and suppliers from the perspective of all project participants. Thought leaders in construction law and practice will present a broad range of topics including: subcontractor liability for design; managing the risk of non-performance during construction, and securing that risk through traditional bonding or subcontractor default insurance; securing payment and available remedies under state and federal law; overcoming or enforcing contract language relating to damages, including no-damages-for-delay, liquidated damages, and waivers of consequential damages; “pass-through” claims: successful positioning, False Claims Act considerations, and avoiding the “winged monkey in the middle” position; and, ethical issues in bidding and in contracting with M/W/DBEs.
