Stoel Rives partner, Eric A. Grasberger, is a panelist on the March 6, 2012 CLE webinar, Multi-Party Construction Defect Litigation, providing construction litigators with effective approaches for trying multi-party construction defect cases. The panel will discuss unique challenges that arise during investigation, discovery and trial, and practical strategies for protecting the client.
Construction defect claims are common in the building industry. Often multiple parties, including builders, developers, contractors and architects, are joined as defendants in construction defect litigation. Counsel for each party faces a number of challenges in trying these cases.
To overcome the unique challenges of multi-party suits and avoid ethical missteps, construction litigators must be armed with effective approaches for navigating investigation, discovery and trial. Practitioners must also be versed in successful tactics for allocating liability and damages.
Listen as our panel of construction law practitioners discusses best practices when representing parties in multi-party construction defect cases. The panel will analyze the ethical and practical challenges facing parties and their counsel in multi-party litigation and suggest ways to overcome them.
