September 30, 2022
Maslon construction litigation attorneys David Suchar and Peter Doely will respectively present and coordinate sessions at the American Bar Association (ABA) Forum on Construction Law Fall Meeting, scheduled for Sept. 28-30 in Memphis.
David will serve on a Sept. 30 panel examining lessons learned in the deadly Florida International University pedestrian bridge collapse. Panelists will describe the unique insurance issues raised by this event, discuss the role of the peer reviewer for the project, and hear a forensic analysis of the causes of this collapse, with a focus on identifying lessons that construction lawyers can apply and implement with their own clients. Peter will coordinate a Sept. 30 session reviewing the most important developments of the last year in legal ethics, the law of lawyering, and attorney-client privilege.
