Session Three (Thursday, December 2, 2021) – Top Challenges Facing Construction Industry Participants: Managing Ongoing Projects and Customer Relationships


Contractors and subcontractors are increasingly finding themselves in difficult situations due to project disruptions and delayed payments by owners or upstream contractors, among other issues impacting their business relationships.

Faegre Drinker construction attorneys John Mitchell, Shawn Doorhy and Liz Charnowski will lead a discussion with Ms. Leong on topics ranging from how to leverage contract rights while preserving ongoing business relationships, maximizing opportunities for winning new work while protecting the bottom line, navigating potential supply interruptions and effectively using outside counsel to protect a company’s rights.
