Description:

The troublesome contract clauses listed and their solutions will be addressed from the perspective of outlining the owner's and contractor's preferred positions assuming they have leverage in negotiating these clauses, but also focus on a range of compromise solutions that are more likely to occur and provide practical tips to expedite a reasonable compromise.

With respect to each of the topics, Bruce Merwin will provide sample provisions and examples illustrating the importance of the various positions. He will also discuss the key factors in improving the negotiating skills of the audience. His presentation will include his own mock negotiations between the owner and contractor on various topics.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
