Lane Kelman and Matthew Skaroff conducted an interactive Building Industry Association Philadelphia lunch and learn covering lessons learned from a variety of construction defect cases, from the perspectives of both owner and contractor. The presentation centered on real-life examples that Lane and Matt encountered in various cases with the goal of imparting practical lessons for the future. The seminar focused on what constitutes a construction defect, and the immediate steps to take when one arises. Lane and Matt shared best practices in contract negotiation to ensure that the risk of liability is carried by someone else. They also addressed the damages recoverable for defects, and the common defenses raised against them.
The lunch and learn will be hosted at the Cohen Seglias Philadelphia office:
