Avoiding Claims in Commercial Construction: WSHB’s Keith Smith to Share Expertise at National Construction Conference

September 27, 2016

Claim avoidance in the context of commercial construction is one of the hottest issues facing owners, developers, and contractors in 2016 and beyond. Trial lawyer Keith Smith, a partner at WSHB, will be providing practice pointers as part of a highly anticipated panel discussion at the 2016 CLM National Construction Claims Conference at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego on September 28-30th.

“Commercial construction claims can be complex and challenging,” said Smith. “This panel will address key contract provisions in today’s commercial construction contracts and identify pitfalls for those working in risk management and claims, as well as general counsel and construction lawyers.”

The panel will also address alternative project delivery methods, subguard vs. bonded subcontractors, documentation of changed conditions, and anti-indemnity statutes and their impact on risk transfer.

Joining Smith on this distinguished panel are Lawrence Singerman and Carmen Vann with Turner Construction Company, Lawrence West with West Mermis PLLC and Nathaniel Holt with the Pomona United School District.

Smith specializes in construction, real estate, and business litigation. He regularly represents residential and commercial builders, public and private owners and design professionals in complex construction law matters. Those issues include involving payment disputes, mechanic’s lien, stop notice, bond claims, construction defects, delay, acceleration and inefficiency claims, extra work, differing site, changed condition and change order claims, construction site injuries, bid protests, debarment proceedings and False Claims Act disputes. Smith also handles claims involving the sale of commercial and residential real estate, including fraud, breach of contract, professional negligence and class actions.
