Consider two frantic calls to two separate construction attorneys: The first caller exclaims, “Something’s wrong. I think we need to sue.” The second caller gasps, “Something’s wrong. I think we’re going to be sued.” What should the attorneys do?
This program provides a road map of best practices to guide both new construction attorneys and seasoned litigators through the various issues that arise at client intake for construction disputes. Covering the perspective of both plaintiff and defendant, the program will explore key intake issues, including:
- Ethical issues and conflicts
- Goal assessment
- Preservation of evidence
- Claims analysis
- Dispute resolution strategy
- Adding value for the client
