Paul Bruno

PLENARY THREE – Safety for Outside Counsel: Tips and Trends
Friday, February 22, 2019 | 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM EST

Every private practitioner needs to know about safety issues facing their clients and how to aid them in avoiding problems rather than just reacting to them. Safety issues can affect the ability of companies to market, win, plan and execute work. A panel of experienced in-house counsel will educate us on contract clauses, requirements, imposed duties, and the detriments and benefits of such language. The panel will also review the costs of compliance and potential consequences of partial compliance or failure to satisfy safety requirements. The importance of a “safety culture” will be addressed and how the private practitioner can add value to clients before safety challenges arise.

James Nagle

Friday, February 22, 2019 | 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM EST

Renowned government contracts lawyer and commentator, Jim Nagle, will delve into the best and most interesting public contract cases, legislation, new regulations and other publications of the past year in this fast-paced, illuminating review. If there are changes to the Federal Acquisition Regulation or federal case law that might impact your practice, you will learn about them here. This presentation promises to provide both education and entertainment, followed by a short but lively discussion on the hot topics of the public contracts industry.

John Hinchey

PLENARY FIVE – Can We Steal from International Arbitration to Improve
Saturday, February 23, 2019 | 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM EST

The ADR and International Committees have combined to present a high level interactive discussion on improving domestic construction arbitration. This session will discuss whether the principles and procedures utilized in international arbitration can be used to improve the efficiency and lower the cost of domestic construction arbitration while not reducing the quality of the award.
