Multi-party Construction cases can be some of the most difficult cases to present, mediate and resolve.   The combination of multiple parties, multiple claims, contractual defense or indemnity issues and insurance coverage disputes can challenge even experienced construction lawyers and mediators.  In this session, two blue chip construction mediators will offer their insights and advice for lawyers and mediators on how to best present and resolve these complex cases.

Lunch and registration will begin at noon. The program will begin at 12:15.
