Sorry, I won't be answering this rhetorical question today. Instead, a group of construction, design and surety legal experts will attempt to address this difficult question at an upcoming symposium:
What: Trends in Green Building Seminar
Who: Tom Mawson - The USGBC and Trends in Green Building; Chris Cheatham - The Emergence of Green Building Litigation; Bryan Phillips - Green Construction: A Legal Perspective, Dan Knise - Designing Green - With Reward Comes Risk, Geoff Delisio - A Surety Perspective on Green Building
When: Tuesday, December 2, 2008 9:00 - 12:00 AM
Where: 4301 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22203
You can also download a complete invitation here.
I will be speaking about the emergence of green building litigation with a focus on the Shaw Development v. Southern Builders case. Other speakers will address green building issues from a construction, design and surety perspective. Seating is limited so please RSVP by November 21 to Nancy Shipley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding the event. If you are going to attend let me know (email@example.com) -- I would love to meet some of my readers!
