Register now for "Construction Law: Surety and Insurance Coverage Issues for Contractors and Insurers"!

This seminar will enhance real estate and construction law practitioners’ knowledge of important insurance and surety issues.

Contractors expend a considerable sum to ensure that they have general liability insurance, but all too often in construction defect cases (often with millions of dollars in potential damages on the line) the insurer denies coverage based on “business risk” exclusions in the policy.  Likewise, design professionals face coverage issues in these cases.  Our insurance coverage panel will focus on coverage, current case law related to “business risk” exclusions to coverage for construction defect claims, and how to address them in the context of a dispute.

Attendees will also receive feedback as to what drives sureties to provide bonding, how contractors obtain bonding, the legal relationship between sureties, their principals, and third parties, and how that relationship plays out in litigation.

Learn what every real estate and construction law practitioner should know about surety and insurance coverage issues to help clients to avoid costly pitfalls, better insure protection, and mitigate risk.
