Why You Should Attend

While the art of negotiating and drafting construction contracts has always involved dynamic practice skills, the governing body of construction law and regulations has generally remained static—until recently, that is. In the last several years, demands for efficiency and sustainability in commercial and large public construction projects have been met with an increased use of technology, new construction contract modules, and more attention to funding at the federal level.

Construction practice is now more likely to involve digital technologies such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and project management software. Then the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has specifically allocated funding and tax incentives for projects that support infrastructure and renewable energy goals. These new developments have fundamentally changed the way we structure construction contracts and how courts interpret key provisions.

PLI is proud to again join with Patrick Miller, Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath, and Conor Tighe, Clayco, to ensure that construction law practitioners are fully equipped to build the best contracts for their clients. As always, we’ve recruited faculty from among the country’s best practicing in the construction, infrastructure, and energy sectors to provide you with innovative, successful practice tips while keeping you updated on the legal and regulatory developments that impact your clients’ goals.
