  • June 17th | 10 a.m. | Topic: Change Orders – Follow the Contract and Think Like a Lawyer

Speaker: Kate Pettit

Change orders are typical on almost every construction project. How a company drafts its contracts and documents any changes to the contract will significantly impact whether it will run into change order disputes down the road. In this presentation, Kate Pettit, Esq., of Offit Kurman, P.A. will discuss various aspects of change orders: why unexpected costs and changes to scopes of work happen, how to draft your contract to avoid change order disputes, and the proper way to prepare change orders and document the file in order to put your company in the best position to favorably resolve a change-related dispute.

Following the presentation, please stay connected for a brief Q&A as well as a networking opportunity with other construction professionals!
