Feb 2020 Lunch Meeting The Ethics of Disputes: Managing the Construction Claim Process by Tim Wentz

Claims have long been identified as one the most significant issues that face contractors, owners and architect/engineers alike. Invariably, claims create an adverse environment that often prevents long-term relationships, the foundation of a strong company. This presentation investigates the common causes of claims and then builds on that knowledge to generate common sense strategies to avoid claims and manage risk.
