Jim Killian and Jason Lien to Co-Present at AFCOM's Data Center World Global 2016 Conference

March 18, 2016

Jim Killian and Jason Lien, partners in Maslon's Litigation Group, will co-present "Operational and Legal Issues Arising from Electrical System Failures in Data Centers" as part of AFCOM's Data Center World Global 2016 Conference from March 14-18, 2016. During their session, Jim and Jason will explore the problem of electrical system failures in data centers and how owners should evaluate and respond to such issues by using actual case studies involving the defective design and construction of electrical feeder systems at data centers.

Jim represents owners, design professionals, and contractors in all phases of the construction process. In the last five years, his practice has focused on the development of independent power production facilities on an international basis. While Jim's current practice is focused on representing owners and construction lenders, he has represented and continues to represent national contractors in complex delay, acceleration, and mechanic's lien claims across the country. He also acts as national counsel for an international insurance brokerage agency on all unfair competition claims.

Jason serves as co-chair of Maslon's Litigation Group and focuses his practice on representing clients from the construction, real estate, financial services, and food industries. Jason also frequently represents policyholders in insurance coverage and bad faith disputes. Prior to joining Maslon in 2002, Jason honed his trial and appellate skills as a Naval Officer with the United States Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps, where he led hundreds of courts-martial, administrative hearings, and military appeals. Jason regularly appears 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.
