Stephen Henning addressing emerging trends in mixed-use development claims at Construction Defect Seminar

Nationally acclaimed litigator Stephen Henning shares his expertise on mixed-use development claims at the West Coast Casualty Construction Defect Seminar, Friday, May 19, 2017 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California. This compelling panel, titled “Mixed Up about Mixed Use? — Understanding and Handling Mixed Use Development Claims,” will provide proven strategies from an underwriting, claims and defense counsel perspective.

“Real estate developers are responding to the millennial buyer and demand for urban in-fill projects with different products which present unique issues in the litigation context,” said Henning, Founding Partner at WSHB. “We already are seeing perils and pitfalls in risk transfer and theories of liability which are markedly different from the garden variety case of pure residential claims.”

This product and emerging issues will frame an interactive panel discussion with industry leaders on the first day of the conference. Implications on reverse conversions and policy language for commercial/residential communities will also be discussed by underwriters and claim managers joining the panel. The West Coast Construction Defect Seminar is one of the largest of it’s kind and it is a perfect opportunity for lawyers, insurance specialists, contractors and builders to learn more about the emerging area of claims and law.”

Henning is celebrated for his outstanding results in complex construction, real estate, business and toxic tort litigation. He regularly represents Fortune 500 companies and preeminent members of the business community, including some of the nation’s largest residential and commercial public and private owners, homebuilders, developers, investors, contractors and lenders. Additionally, Henning has a thriving practice focused on public entities, handling all facets of litigation and risk management pertaining to construction and toxic tort issues.
