This seminar is specifically designed for building envelope experts who provide litigation support services. It was developed by an experienced construction attorney who has litigated several building envelope-related cases, and a building envelope expert with extensive experience in litigation support. Using real case histories, the seminar will provide an overview of construction litigation process and various construction claim types. The presenters will discuss all stages of litigation, the role of an expert in various stages, how an expert can make or break a case, and the important attributes of a building envelope expert. The presenters will also cover typical challenges facing building envelope experts, ranging from document management to attribution of damages to various parties. They will also cover the “dos” and “don’ts” of testifying in various venues.
Learning points include various stages and types of typical construction claims; differences between litigation, arbitration and mediation, and how the expert’s services differ for each; typical services of a building envelope expert; managing the lawyers’ expectations of a building envelope expert; and how to testify effectively.
