Construction Defect Disputes and Litigation Seminar

Join SDV’s Theresa Guertin and others on Friday, December 4 at the Holiday Inn Hartford Downtown Area for a day-long seminar on how to skillfully utilize recent case law to clarify policy language.

Construction Defect Disputes and Litigation: Using Coverage, Case Law and Indemnification to Shift Liability

What is the definition of an “occurrence”? What “occurrences” cause property damage? Does “faulty workmanship” qualify as an accident? Courts across the country are split on the answers to these questions and many more. In this cutting-edge construction defect legal course, you’ll dig deep into the heart of the issue of construction defect cases and define policy language with the most current case law. Veteran construction defect litigators will equip you with advanced techniques for allocating continuous coverage triggers and using CGL exclusions and exceptions as ammunition. You’ll also learn how to use indemnification language to strategically shift liability to the contractor, subcontractor and/or owner.
