December 6 – 8, 2021
We look forward to sponsoring at the 2021 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 35th 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 Rob D’Onofrio will speak as part of a panel discussion. The session, Are These Claims Viable? Evaluating and Using Liquidated Damages, Stipulated Sums, Disincentives/Incentives and Other Common Owner Claims, will help attendees gain a greater understanding of how liquidated damages and other such clauses operate, the need for evaluation of actual damages vs. these provisions, the ways they are distinct from the imposition of penalties (which are generally void as against public policy), and the importance of evaluating the reasonableness of the potential damages in a contract.
