Project managers of both general contractors and subcontractors take on tremendous responsibilities, from oversight of the budget to management of change orders and potential claims. In this two-part series, Cohen Seglias attorneys Lane Kelman and Jackson Nichols will provide project managers detailed guidance on best practices and practical approaches for challenges that can arise in the course of a project.

This session will focus on contract provisions, documentation and claims. Topics include important notice and dispute provisions; different types of claims and their impact; and various documentation that can help preserve claims.
