Pre Recorded

  • 90 minutes

Contractors have faced very strict "no damages for delay" clauses. But the tides are changing. If signed into law, it would allow recovery for delay damages, despite contract language. The recent case of company dispute regarding delay claims due to contracts terms has forced construction professionals to look for delay damages clauses in their contracts. Courts order on recoverable delay damages is a shock for many.

Most construction disputes involve a delay component, but analyzing and assigning responsibility for delay would be merely an academic exercise were it not for the costs associated with those delays. It will look at the types of damages, the proof of damages, and the recoverability of those damages. In addition to “actual damages,” it will also cover the concepts surrounding liquidated damages and how liquidated damages limit both exposure and recovery.
