ORLANDO, FL – Michael McKenna, the self-described “old man” of Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC, already had an engineering degree when he decided to go to law school at night in the 1970s. During those years of study, he maintained a job as project manager for a construction company, ultimately starting his construction law career in 1980.
As a Construction Super Conference panelist for a presentation on Liquidated Damages and Stipulated Sums, McKenna brings his considerable experience, which includes litigation in 22 states. Now focused on New York and New Jersey, McKenna and colleagues (see graphic for date, time, and co-presenters) will operate on the premise that you don’t know as much as you think when it comes to liquidated damages and stipulated sums.
“Liquidated damages are a topic that every construction lawyer runs into on almost a daily basis,” McKenna says. “I have been shocked by how few attorneys really even understand the basics of liquidated damages or stipulated sums.” CSC sat down with McKenna to learn more about the topic and the concepts that will be covered during the Dec. 6-8, 2021 conference in Orlando, Fla.
