8:30am Registration and Breakfast
9:00am Welcome and Introduction - Rick van Oppen, VOCO2
9:05am Improving Performance & Profitability -Tim Corbett, SmartRisk
The A/E and environmental industry has had a strong recovery and currently experiencing record high backlog; however economic warning signs are everywhere. Higher performing firms are preparing and tightening their belts focusing on improving performance and profitability. This session will identify industry claims and trends, but most importantly the practices applied by lower risk, higher performing and profitable firms.
10:35am Handling a claim when it is made against the Design Professional – Jeff Alitz, Freeman Mathis & Gary LLP
Receiving an informal (demand letter or similar) or formal (lawsuit) claim is never a pleasant event. But there are steps the Design Professional can take to preserve its insurance coverage and to minimize the impact of the claim. From receipt of the claim, to responding to it and seeking the most efficient resolution, the session will provide a guide from a trial lawyer’s perspective to survive the claim process and achieve a “best-case” result.
