Virtual Nooniversity: Alma Mater- A Claims Case Study

12:00 PM
Zoom Virtual Meeting | Zoom Kansas City, MO 64108 Map

This will be a VIRTUAL program held on Zoom.  Log in information will be emailed to attendees two days before the program.

Join Holmes Murphy for a look at this claims case study.

An architect retained a civil engineer to design a roadway/slope embankment as part of a renovation/addition to a prestigious private school. When the roadway failed, the civil verbally accepted responsibility, but later recanted. The civil also pointed to a limitation of liability in their contract that the architect hadfailed to spot during contract formation, leaving the architect with a $500,000 exposure.  

Key points that will be discussed include:

  1. The risks of failing to adequately review a subconsulting agreement
  2. The risks of agreeing to a limitation of liability in the subconsultant’s contract while not having one in the prime-client agreement
  3. The failure by the architect to document a key discussion with the subconsultant
  4. The sometimes-contentious issue of betterment
