With the difficult financial times and the scarcity of financing, contract language has become increasingly difficult for design professions.  The idea behind this seminar is to identify challenging language and explain the impact of the language on the designer.  What has been done is Willis has taken clauses from actual contracts that have been seen with some frequency and used those as the basis for analysis of coverage and risk management issues.
  • Utilizing actual contracts presented to design professionals, select problematic words and clauses emerging as recurring issues for the design professionals.
  • Discuss the impacts of such words/phrases from both a legal and coverage perspective.  Risk management issues will also be addressed.
  • Prioritize words and phrases based on impact to the designer, and then recommend alternate language to address these issues to be negotiated with the client.  As so many owners no longer are willing to negotiate contracts, we will provide "work- arounds," or mitigate the impact of problematic language.
  • This program will discuss various risk management and insurance issues surrounding accessibility and energy efficiency.  Engage the participants on the topic of jobsite safety and their role and responsibility. We will also discuss preferred contract language to address codes, regulations, etc. and have a lively discussion on contract issues as well as rules and regulations governing the architecture practice.  How to protect your firm and the public through insurance and various risk management techniques.
