L&B Lawyers on the Speaking Circuit

February 6, 2015

On January 22, Laurie & Brennan partner Krista Hallberg Kapp presented at the ABA’s Tort, Trial, Insurance and Practice Section and Fidelity, Surety Law Committee’s joint mid-winter meeting in New York on the development of a project from the Owner’s perspective. Choosing an appropriate project delivery system is one of the most important decisions an Owner must make at the early stages of the construction project. Determining how to process and organize the design, procurement, construction and completion of a project is crucial to a project’s success. Ms. Kapp’s presentation included an evaluation of certain project delivery systems from an owner’s perspective and discussed the benefits and risks to the owner of utilizing certain project delivery systems.

Laurie & Brennan partner Dan Brennan participated in a mock arbitration presentation on January 25 at ASHRAE’s Winter Conference in Chicago. In the mock arbitration, Dan represented the fictional owner of a pharmaceutical company that was prosecuting and defending claims arising out of the renovation of a manufacturing facility that involved proprietary technology. Other participants in the mock arbitration included mechanical engineers, a mechanical contractor, a sustainable building consultant and other attorneys. The interactive presentation prompted a lively exchange with the audience and illuminated important lessons about the vagaries of dispute resolution.
