This workshop explains the origin, concepts, and current status of this volatile subject.  It provides insight of the marketplace and the risks associated with contractors; clarity on recent court case law decisions and ensuing policy language and coverage changes; analysis and application of "Right to Repair" Construction Defect laws and their impact; as well as practical information on how to effectively manage the risk.


Includes examination and application of the critical new Anti-Indemnity legislations and Contract Provisions and the latest ISO Endorsements.


Among the matters covered are:


        Insurance Coverage Issues - am I covered or not?

        Why is this liability coverage so difficult and expensive to obtain?

        How can I avoid becoming part of a CD claim?

        What contract language is best?  What about warranties?

        How can I negotiate contracts for more favorable terms?  

        How the new anti-Indemnity Provisions for Developers, GCs, and Subs affect the risk.

        How do the latest legal decisions affect coverage?

        What are the effects of the latest ISO forms on coverage?

        Are Wraps (OCIPs) the answer?  Potential Advantages and Disadvantages

        How do Construction and Building Materials issues affect liability?

        What is the impact of "Right to Repair" Construction Defect laws on liability?

        Do "Right to Repair" laws protect or expose me to Construction Defect claims?
