SLS Live Webinar Series - Avoiding Pitfalls in Energy Project Construction: EPC Contract Disputes, Owner Protections, Resolving Claims

Judah Lifschitz and Dan Kapner will be presenting this upcoming live CLE video webinar for Strafford Webinars. We will guide power and energy plant owners and their counsel regarding challenges that arise in energy project construction and effective methods to avoid and mitigate claims, contract disputes, and litigation. We will discuss key engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract provisions that must be considered during the negotiation and drafting of EPC contracts to ensure owner protections, properly allocate risks throughout project construction, and avoid and mitigate claims.

Webinar Description:

Energy projects involve significant risks that must be allocated between project owners and contractors. Failure to adequately plan for and manage potential mishaps during energy project construction can lead to costly litigation. Counsel must understand these risks and identify essential contractual rights and responsibilities throughout project construction to effectively avoid and manage claims.

Avoiding and managing claims arising from EPC contracts begins at project inception. Owners and contractors must understand contracting models and delivery systems, performance standards, limitations of liability, available remedies, and other essential items to achieve the most appropriate construction contract for each energy project. If there is a dispute, counsel must understand key mechanisms in preparing, negotiating, and resolving claims.

We will discuss effective EPC deal structures to ensure owner protection, key pitfalls to avoid in energy project construction, and essential techniques for negotiating and resolving claims. After our presentation, we will engage in a live question and answer session with participants so we can answer your questions about these important issues directly.
