Virginia State Bar Seminar Resonates with ICI Consultants Once Again
Interface Consulting attended Virginia CLE’s 32nd Annual Construction and Public Contracts Law Seminar from November 4-5, 2011, for the third year in a row as both a sponsor and exhibitor. This two-day seminar took place at the historic Boar’s Head Inn in Charlottesville, Virginia. This year’s focus, “Mitigating Losses and Impacts on a Troubled Project – A View from Multiple Perspectives,” was a highly relevant topic for the attorneys, construction industry representatives, and Interface consultants in attendance.
Although the course offers attorneys a full year’s worth of Virginia CLE credits, it also offers excellent networking and education resources to those not in the legal profession. As dispute experts, Interface Consulting found the courses on “Troubled Projects” to be in line with the types of issues they assist construction industry client with every day. “The Troubled Project,” was discussed from the subcontractor, general contractor, owner, surety, insurer, and consultant perspectives.
Another course of note was the “Litigating or Arbitrating the Troubled Construction Project – A View from the Bench” course, which was chaired by two retired Virginia judges, Hon. Stanley P. Klein and Hon. Robert W. Wooldridge, Jr. As Interface Consulting President, Mr. Frank G. Adams, has served as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and international forums since 1988, this course was especially interesting to our consultants in attendance.
