Construction Law Strategies for 2009: Risk Redefined (March 11, 2009)

This critical workshop for the construction industry and its advisors takes place on April 15, 2009 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Toronto Don Valley. Current economic turbulence has created more uncertainty, and therefore risk, than ever before. Even the smallest delay or dispute can bring work to a grinding halt, affect the viability of the project, and put everyone working on the project in jeopardy. The key to success in this market is an understanding of where your risks lie and how to mitigate these risks, then the effective management of situations that will arise.


Join your colleagues for assessing risk in all aspects of the construction industry, including the ever-expanding green building market. We will address fundamental industry issues and offer the latest updates on recent court cases: learn how these findings will affect the way you do business now and on future projects.


A panel of nationally recognized experts will share their knowledge and provide you with the tools to master the legal complexities of any project to avoid pitfalls, accomplish your objectives, and improve your profitability. Speakers include: Shea Bunston; Duncan Glaholt, Glaholt LLP; Joel Heard, McCarthy Tétrault LLP; Edwin Lim, BLJC; Bruce Reynolds, Borden Ladner Gervais LLP; and Rocco Sebastiano, Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP.


This event intends to attract architects, general contractors, consultants to the construction industry, builders/developers, construction lawyers, in-house counsel, contract lawyers, owners and developers, engineers and subcontractors.
