Society of Construction Law North America 2022 Conference
The Society of Construction Law North America (SCL NA) hosted its inaugural annual conference. The theme for the conference was “Rocky Mountain Highs and Lows: Lessons Learned in Managing Construction Disputes.”
Several BRG professionals took part in panels on July 7:
- Jeff Ottesen participated in “Mitigation v. Acceleration: What’s the Difference?” Topics included contractor-delays; voluntary, instructed, and constructive acceleration in the context of how it arises; and what generally has to be shown to recover.
- Jon Perry participated in “Delay and Disruption Claims: Old Concepts, New Approaches.” The panel highlighted and contrasted the “modern” and “traditional” methods of delay and disruption claims.
The conference explored themes related to complex dispute resolution and construction law best practices, as the industry adapts and rises above the challenges in 2022. Dara Hendrix and Pasha Ameli are on the board of directors of the SCL NA and conference planning committee. BRG was the platinum sponsor of the conference.
