Jason Lien's Article on Forum-Selection Clauses in Construction Agreements Published in The Construction Lawyer

September 17, 2013

Jason Lien, attorney in Maslon’s Litigation Practice Group, has authored an article titled, “Forum-Selection Clauses in Construction Agreements: Strategic Considerations in Light of the Supreme Court’s Pending Review of Atlantic Marine,” in the Summer 2013 issue of The Construction Lawyer, Journal of the American Bar Association Forum on the Construction Industry. The article provides an in-depth analysis of the issues surrounding the US Supreme Court’s pending decision in Atlantic Marine, a case involving a dispute over enforcement of the forum-selection clause of a construction project contract. As explained by Jason in the article, his goal is “to provide any construction litigator with a starting point for analyzing a forum-selection clause in a construction contract at the onset of a dispute” and ”prepare any litigator if the playing field for enforcing forum-selection clauses shifts again."

Jason Lien is a partner in Maslon’s Litigation Group, and an experienced trial lawyer who practices commercial litigation in a wide range of substantive areas, with a special emphasis on litigation involving the construction, real estate, food, and healthcare industries. He has appeared in federal and state court on behalf of food companies, design-build firms, general contractors, architects, specialty contractors, property management companies, real estate owners, and lenders.

The article is available on the ABA website to members of the American Bar Association Forum on the Construction Industry.
