David Suchar to Present at the Practising Law Institute's "Building Better Construction Contracts" Program

December 14, 2018

David Suchar, partner and Chair of Maslon's Construction and Real Estate Litigation Group, will present at the Practising Law Institute's "Building Better Construction Contracts" seminar on December 14, 2018 in New York City. During his session, titled "Ethical Challenges and Duties of Appointed Counsel," he will discuss the following:

  • Understanding and appreciating the tri-partite relationship between attorney, client/insured and insurer;
  • Understanding the law in jurisdictions where appointed defense counsel owes a duty of care solely to the client/insured versus those jurisdictions where appointed defense counsel owes a duty of care to both the client/insured and the insurer;
  • Understanding duties of confidentiality and loyalty as appointed defense counsel; and
  • Best practices for acting as insurer appointed counsel

David is a skilled trial attorney, regularly representing clients in construction and insurance coverage disputes, government and internal investigations, and a variety of commercial litigation. His construction experience includes defect, payment, and lien claims in addition to all manner of construction-related insurance coverage claims, negotiations, and litigation. David has developed a niche national practice representing commercial policyholders in insurance coverage disputes, including claims made on commercial general liability, professional liability, pollution, and crime policies. His recent successes include multimillion-dollar recoveries for such matters in Minnesota, Florida, Louisiana, Washington, Virginia, Maryland, and Utah.
