September 30, 2015

Jim Killian and Jason Lien, partners in Maslon's Construction Law Group, will present "Legal Issues Arising in the Design, Construction and Operation of Data Centers" as part of the Association for Computer Operations Management's (AFCOM) Minneapolis Symposium on September 30, 2015, at the University of Minnesota's McNamara Alumni Center. Jim and Jason will explore general factual and legal problems that have arisen in the design, construction, and operation of data centers, and they will address steps designers, constructers, and owners of data centers should consider and undertake when confronted with problems that are discovered during and after construction

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. In that role, Jim is currently admitted pro hac vice in litigations venued in the state and federal courts of New Jersey, California, Arizona, and Oregon.

Jason is 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. He has also litigated disputes involving product liability, insurance coverage, international trade, land use, business torts, unfair competition, intellectual property, healthcare fraud, non-compete agreements, and medical malpractice.
