This program is intended to steer attendees through the construction defect claim process, from as early as drafting a client’s contracts to better defend against potential future claims, through pre-litigation considerations, the collaborative process either before or after litigation, and through litigation and the various issues that may arise therein.

This program is designed to:

  • Provide a thorough understanding of how to prepare for and tackle construction defect claims
  • Appeal to both the contractual and litigious interests of construction defect claims
  • Equip North Carolina attorneys to better instruct and meet their clients’ needs in connection with construction defect claims
