Do you want to know how to avoid legal pitfalls with transportation projects?

There seems to be a legal issue that can arise out of anything.

In such a sue-happy society, we all want to know how to stay out of trouble and keep our employees safe.

  • Developments and trends;
  • Ethics issues, false claims;
  • Risk management and dispute resolution;

  • Delay and impact claims; and
  • DBE/WBE-related issues. 

The program will feature presentations from these leading law firms: Peckar & Abramson; Watt, Tieder, Hofar & Fitzgerald; Kilpatrick Stockton; Beveridge & Diamond PC; Holland & Knight; Coats Rose; and The Law Office of Lawrence J. Joseph
