In light of the current construction environment, construction defect resolution experts at LiMa Solutions(SM) are hosting a symposium on July 26 and 27 titled "Drawing a Line at the Bottom Line - Strategies for Reducing Construction Defect Litigation Costs."

The symposium will provide insurance carriers, developers, general contractors and subcontractors with successful strategies for reducing construction defect litigation costs. It will address many of the tough issues facing litigants today - and address how to stay in business in this challenging environment - with emphasis on the development of forward-thinking solutions that can be quickly implemented.

"Our symposium will expose participants to construction defect litigation strategies that will help resolve issues and protect their bottom line," says symposium creator Edward Martinet. "Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of how to address obstacles, but most importantly they will be presented with concrete methodologies that result in earlier resolution of construction defect cases."

Sessions will be led by industry insiders who will share real solutions for reducing litigation costs. Insurance and construction professionals with a breadth of experience navigating construction defect cases will address the obstructions and hindrances that challenge efficient and equitable resolution. Judicial and legal panelists with extensive backgrounds in construction and insurance arbitration will provide their thoughts on the current state of the litigation process. Construction defect experts will present innovative resolution concepts that can save valuable resources, time and money.

On July 26 and 27, 2012 at the Westin Key West Resort and Marina, the symposium will consist of four presentations split between two half-day sessions, leaving time each day for networking. Continuing education credits (MCLE/CE/CPE) are being pursued and will be announced on the event website.
