Foley Construction Partner Kimberly A. Ashby, along with Peckar & Abrahamson Partner Gary M. Stein, will present a “Construction Law Overview and Update,” including the topics of 558 Pre-Suit Notice, Statute of Limitations, and Statute of Repose, at a live seminar (and webcast) of The Seminar Group on Wednesday, May 15, in Miami, FL. The presentation is part of a day-long seminar on construction defect litigation. As described by the event organizers, construction and design defects are the scourge of the construction industry and can cause building damage and result in significant expenses for owners, designers, contractors, material suppliers and insurers. Defect claims can plague our court and arbitration systems, resulting in insurance claims and loss of productivity for the owners, designers, and contractors while the litigation proceeds. Some companies are changing how (and whether) they build condominiums. The standard assumptions related to risk transfer and insurance coverage no longer apply. Instead, companies are continually adjusting their practices in response to changes in market conditions, insurance availability, and the law.
The seminar will focus on strategies and tactics employed to address and avoid construction defect problems. The speakers at this seminar have a vast amount of experience with construction defect claims and are among the leaders in their trades. Attending this seminar will help keep you on the cutting edge of the ever-changing world of construction defects. The course has been approved by The Florida Bar for 7.5 general CLER credits (Live Credits for In Person Attendance & Webcast). 7.5 credits apply to Civil Trial certification and Construction Law certification.
