Original Program: When the Walls Come Tumblin' Down...:Preparing for and Confronting Construction Defect Litigation in North Carolina (2018 Construction Law Section Annual Meeting), September 28-29, 2018
When a party invitation arrives in the mail, there are several things the recipient must consider.
What kind of party is it? Who sent the invitation? Who else has been invited?
Receiving a new complaint or third-party complaint is not unlike receiving that party invitation. When that new complaint involves allegations of construction defects, defense counsel must quickly analyze a number of issues before responding.
This session is a brief primer on some topics defense counsel should think about before heading off to the party.
- Initial review of materials
- Additional insured coverage
- Determining experts
- Evaluating potential cross-claims and counterclaims
- Perspectives of a third-party defendant
- Alignments amongst multiple defendants
