  • Critical insights into the changing role of insurance for construction projects;
  • Key ethical considerations to ensure communications between in-house counsel and business decision-makers are protected during discovery;
  • Managing complex litigation and leveraging recent rule changes to help control the cost of litigation;
  • Public sector contracting trends to meet a new boom in infrastructure projects;
  • A leading economist and a futurist describe economic indicators and emerging frontiers in the construction industry;
  • Best practices in discovery management; and
  • Crafting realistic and useful litigation budgets
