In-Person Live | Contracts, Controversies and Completion (2023 Construction Law Section Fall Program)

This item is expired.

Contracts, Controversies and Completion, the 2023 Construction Law Section Fall Program, traces a construction dispute from contract formation to litigation, and everything in between. Join industry experts as they share insights into how to draft a contract that anticipates problems, how to prepare a case for litigation, how to settle a case at mediation, and if that doesn't work, how to win at trial.

This program explores alternative construction delivery methods, provides skills to effectively help your clients obtain (or keep) a professional license, and discusses the latest updates and changes in North Carolina's construction case law.
