Preemptive measures to manage costs and potential disputes on mega-projects such as LRTs

Megaprojects, such as LRT's, are characterized by their immense scale, complexity, and substantial financial investment. These projects play a pivotal role in modern infrastructure development. They are also frequently plagued by cost overruns, large delays, and significant disputes. These types of projects tend to take a “life of their own”, and once they do, it becomes difficult to manage or control any costs. Since costs are a lagging indicator, the aim is to discuss how these sorts of projects can be set up and managed to stay ahead of the curve. The purpose of this panel is to discuss the lessons learned from previous LRT projects and the best practices for managing costs and handling disputes on megaprojects

Navigating the Murky waters of Legal Privilege in Construction Disputes:  Practical Guidance on Communications Between Clients, Counsel, and Experts

U.S. privilege doctrines recognize that counsel needs to convey critical information to their client without the risk that those communications will be subject to disclosure later on.  Given the number of players commonly involved in construction disputes – clients, in-house counsel, outside counsel, consultants, testifying experts, etc. – maintaining privilege frequently poses a trap for the unwary. Our panelists will work through best practices to preserve privilege among clients and experts, how those approaches may vary from jurisdiction and forum, and how best to mitigate the risk of potential privilege waivers.

Exculpatory Clauses in Construction Contracts, Calgary, Canada

The Society of Construction Law - Prairies Chapter warmly invites you to an in-person panel discussion titled ‘Exculpatory Clauses in Construction Contracts'.
Contract clauses that purport to limit or exclude one party’s liability for certain types of losses or events are common in construction contracts. However, if a party does not understand the risks they are taking in signing contracts that significantly curtail their normal rights, the consequences can be catastrophic.
Contractors may seek to find ways to circumvent these clauses, while owners may insist on strict enforcement. Are there instances where these clauses may become unenforceable, or less onerous, due to the actions of either party?
This panel discussion will explore the types of clauses all parties to construction projects should be aware of, and how to adequately assess the risks they present. The panel will include input on best practices for owners, consultants, contractors and subcontractors, from experienced in-house and private practice counsel.
This presentation is a "must attend" event for all construction industry participants.
This presentation will commence on September 21, 2022, at 4.00PM MST. A drinks reception with canapes will be between 5.30PM and 7.00PM
