21st Annual West Coast Casualty’s Construction Defect Seminar

21st Annual West Coast Casualty’s Construction Defect Seminar
Sponsored by: West Coast Casualty
May 15-16, 2014
Spotlight on JAMS Speakers: George Calkins, Esq.; Hon. Jonathan Cannon (Ret.); Ross Feinberg, Esq.; Hon. Peter Lichtman (Ret.); Craig Meredith, Esq.; Alex Polsky, Esq.; and Hon.Nancy Wieben Stock (Ret.)

West Coast Casualty ’s annual Construction Defect Seminar is the largest and most highly attended event of its kind, hosting more than 1,700 legal, insurance and other professionals from the construction industry. Dozens of speakers at the top of their profession will discuss the most current trends and developments in construction defect, centering on this year’s theme of “Back to Business…Working Smarter, Not Harder.” 

According to the conference organizers, this theme was selected based on the conditions that face the construction community in today’s environment. Court budget cuts and demands for reductions in fees, expenses, and the use of paper have required those working in the industry to streamline processes and adopt the use of more technology.

JAMS is sponsoring West Coast Casualty and will have a booth just outside of the main ballroom. Several of our neutrals from across California and Nevada will be among the many speakers, including Hon. Jonathan Cannon, who was also nominated for this year’s prestigious Jerrold S. Oliver Award of Excellence. Below please find a list of JAMS neutrals co-presenting or moderating at the conference and the title and time of their panel:
