The New Reality of Commercial Construction Risk in a 3-D World

July 18, 2017

“Whose Design is It Anyway? The New Reality of Commercial Construction Risk in a 3-D World” will be explored by WSHB attorney Sam McDermott at the 2017 CLM Management & Professional Liability Conference later this month. The managing partner in WSHB’s Orange County office, McDermott is a highly acclaimed litigator, a skilled orator and widely sought speaker. His practice spans across a wide array of construction, tort and environmental issues. Experts joining McDermott on the session panel include Christine Bernstock, AECOM and Melanie Brown, Markel Service, Incorporated.

“Risk management involving today’s commercial design professional is faced with new challenges in our advancing world of technology. Building Information Modeling and other technologies are altering the landscape of design implementation and coordination,” said McDermott. “We will explore issues such as how these developments are affecting the risk manager’s evaluation and how claims will be handled in light of technological advances.”

McDermott’s construction practice reaches across several different disciplines, including construction payment disputes, design-build construction, schedule impact damages, onsite injuries, workplace regulations, prevailing wage claims, professional liability, construction quality and defect issues. McDermott has been with the firm since its inception, and has overseen the Orange County office’s growth since it opened in 1998. Sam is highly involved in industry and community organizations, including the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM) and the Public Law Center.
