Nationally acclaimed attorney Stephen Henning joins a panel of claims leaders as they share their perspectives on trends, challenges and opportunities in construction claim litigation at the 2017 CLM & Business Insurance Construction Conference in San Diego, California. The premier session, scheduled for October 10, 2017 at 8:45 a.m., will look to the future of the industry and what companies and professionals must do to remain competitive and successful.
“One of the important takeaways will be the evolving changes in the construction industry and how that translates to claims after the project is complete,” said Henning, Senior Partner and Co-founder at WSHB. “This will include the new and emerging theories of liability given the different types of construction projects, mixed use, commercial pieces and urban development which has accelerated in the past few years.”
Another key takeaway will include emerging coverage issues developing in the area of construction. Together, the panel of thought leaders will identify specific coverage issues, concerns, unresolved areas and venues that are cause for concern for the policyholder, claim professional and counsel. Also to be discussed is the impact of technology in construction and how it impacts claims now and in the future. From BIM modeling to communication during the construction sequence, the evidentiary trail is significantly changing.
