Engineering Panelist - TBD



Too often when disputes arise, firms are unfairly held accountable because the evidence absolving them cannot be located.  In this panel discussion, company principals and an experienced litigator frame the problem, identify causes, and share pointers derived from experience.

     Much of the problem arises from projects becoming more complex, project records ballooning in volume, and deadlines coming faster than ever.  A new look at a firm’s processes and supporting technologies, such as best practices in email management and other project data, enables firms to protect their reputations and their businesses.

     Find out how to tackle these evolving challenges while maintaining the level of service your clients deserve.



1. How have changes in technology impacted risk in the AEC industry.

2. Discuss common mistakes that leave architecture and engineering firms unable to defend themselves in litigation situations.

3. Learn best practices to resolve disputes before they escalate.

4. Discuss best practices and practical solutions with peers.
