Webinar: Managing Risk on FUTURE Projects During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Thursday, May 7, 2020 (11:30 AM - 12:30 PM) (EDT)
Managing Risk on New Projects During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The second part of this two-part series offers essential advice for engineers negotiating for work on future projects. The speakers will cover critical considerations in the pandemic context, including a review of risk management provisions, insurance coverages, and best-practice tips for design firms to use contracts to protect their profitability in these uncertain times.
Jonathan C. Shoemaker believes that the best solution to most problems is often the simplest: what does the contract say? Jonathan begins every new engagement seeking to understand how the parties on a construction project elected to allocate risk and responsibility before the project, and then works with his client to develop a plan for bringing the issue to resolution as expeditiously as possible consistent with the client’s goals. Paul E. Knupp, III is an experienced lawyer devoted to the representation of design professionals. Paul represents engineers and architects in the courtroom and leverages “lessons learned” from claim situations to counsel clients on contract negotiation and risk management strategies, and frequently shares his insights through articles and presentations for local ACEC and AIA chapters.
