Claim Catastrophes & Lessons Learned
Wednesday, July 25, 2018 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST 1.5 AIA CES LUs / 1.5 PDHs
Whether or not you have been involved in litigation, this webinar will be an eye-opener as to how things can go wrong in a design and construction project. The lessons from real claims catastrophes will be presented by experienced trial attorney Brian K. Stewart, Esq., Hon. AIA, and Berkley DP’s Chief Risk Management Officer, Andrew D. Mendelson, FAIA, a licensed architect with 36+ years in professional practice. You’ll learn from others’ mistakes—at no out-of-pocket cost to you. Hearing about, learning from, and avoiding law suits is always cheaper when the experience is on someone else’s dime! The webinar will offer tips and best practices to help you avoid getting stuck in the “quicksand” of a lawsuit. After all, the best way to spend your litigation dollars is to not spend them at all. Please join Andy and Brian for a conversation that will hopefully allow you to sidestep your next lawsuit, which means that your money stays in your pocket where it belongs!
