Construction companies of all sizes and disciplines face the potential for litigation on a daily basis – and it’s not going to get better. What once was a relatively lawsuit-free industry is fast becoming an industry where owners and high-level executives need to have attorneys on speed dial and have to devote too much time to litigation-related meetings and phone calls. And nobody got into construction to deal with that!

In this construction industry-focused session, developed just for the Ignite Construction Summit, attorney Joshua Ferguson will provide insights into the newest trends in litigation that directly impact contractors. 

You’ll learn about recent developments in cases involving:

  • Construction defect

  • Personal injury

  • Employment discrimination

And Joshua will also discuss the emergence of civil action cyber/data breach claims – a brand new challenge for the construction sector. 

Through Joshua’s analysis and insights, you’ll be able to stay ahead of litigation trends, you’ll learn the impact proper insurance plays in your defense, and you’ll learn the insurance coverage necessary to ensure the long-term health of your company. You’ll take home specific, proven steps you can take immediately to manage your risk to both deter litigation in each of these areas and to better defend your company overall.

No one got into construction thinking they’d end up in a courtroom, but today’s litigious environment demands that owners and top-level executives of construction companies be well-versed in risk management to deter and defend against claims.


Whether you’ve faced claims or not, this is a “must-attend” session that can save your company.
