Changing Face of Construction Litigation – Emerging Trends That Are Disrupting the Industry

February 12, 2019

Founding Partner Stephen Henning Featured at CLM Annual Conference

Emerging trends in construction litigation which are disruptive to all facets of the industry will be explored in depth at the upcoming CLM Annual Conference. In a highly anticipated presentation, nationally acclaimed litigator Stephen Henning will take center stage with a distinguished panel of experts dissecting five specific issues which are the most disruptive to those handling construction exposures.

Henning, co-founder of national law firm Wood, Smith, Henning & Berman, will speak on a panel at the CLM Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida on March 14, 2019 at 3:25 p.m. on the hot issue of “Emerging Trends that are Disrupting the Industry.” Joining Henning is panel of highly respected thought leaders in the construction arena: Phyllis Modlin, Claim Manager with Markel; David Stern, President of West Coast Casualty Service, Inc.; George Truitt, Cole Scott; and Maria Quintero with Hinshaw & Culbertson.

“While these trends are tailored to construction related issues, they truly are applicable to many facets of litigation nationally,” explained Henning. “We will discuss and provide sage practice pointers on the litigation impacts from climate change, emerging technology and its impact in case valuation and courtrooms, troubling trends in the mediation context and evolving risk transfer methods which are being employed.”

Mr. Henning is celebrated for his outstanding results in complex construction, real estate, business and toxic tort litigation. He has co-chaired CLM’s National Construction Conference since inception, and is widely regarded as a national thought leader in this area of law. This particular year the spotlight will shine on Henning during the opening session of the conference as he is one of fine lawyers nationally nominated for Professional of the Year – Outside Counsel.

“This particular presentation will empower those on the front lines with all the necessary tools to prepare for the next generation of claims, including both how they are handling and resolved,” said Modlin, who also co-chairs the CLM National Construction Conference. “Employment of new technologies, robotics, artificial intelligence and video from design to the claim creates new challenges for the paperless generation.” Both Henning and Modlin agreed that this session will provide the attendee with practice pointers for the claim professional, risk manager, general counsel, and lawyer on the front line of complex litigation. As a bonus, the panel will dive deep into liability and coverage issues with a national overview of hot venues.

This year’s CLM Annual Conference is expected be the largest claims conference in the country, hosting 2,000 general counsel, claims professionals, risk managers and outside counsel.
