In a fast-paced world, it’s easy to assume that the most significant challenges for design professionals are the ones just emerging on the horizon. New tools, techniques, and protocols like alternative project delivery, BIM, and sustainability command much attention from design professionals and their lawyers and risk managers. But in reality, the project and practice management issues that give rise to most client relationship breakdowns and professional liability claims are not the emerging issues, but the enduring challenges of communicating effectively, documenting appropriately, and setting and maintaining appropriate client expectations. In fact, mastering these “enduring” challenges will enable design professionals to meet the “emerging” challenges of the future.     In this interactive workshop, two experienced construction lawyers will lead participants in discussing and analyzing several case studies drawn from real-life practice, identifying the "enduring" causes of risk that often lie at the heart of claims arising from "emerging" areas of practice. We'll identify and apply tools and tactics effective not only for managing today's practice risks, but the risks that will emerge tomorrow, next year, and long into the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • 1)     Identify and assess the risks inherent in professional practice.
  • 2)     Employ existing practice management tools in new and emerging contexts.
  • Undertake appropriat3e risk management methods for current and future hazards of engineering practice
