  • Negotiating contract clauses that lead to a successful project and avoid disputes.
  • Hot topics and issues with financing the project.
  • Innovative insurance products that help to reduce and allocate risks.

JasonRodgers-DaCruzFirm partner Jason M. Rodgers-da Cruz moderated and co-presented a session titled “Developing and Presenting Expert Testimony: The Long View” for the American Bar Association’s Forum on Construction Law.  The seminar took place on April 29, 2016 as part of the organization’s Division 1 breakfast series.

Jason’s presentation provided participants with an overview on how to identify potential issues before they unfold, the selection of the appropriate expert at the beginning of the dispute, and how to navigate expert testimony to help ensure that both the client’s position and the expert’s analysis are properly presented.

Our firm congratulates Jason for sharing his insights on this important topic with the members of ABA’s Forum on Construction Law.  Click here to learn more about the Forum’s Division 1 breakfast series and its upcoming events.
