About the Webinar:
The effects of the COVID-19 crisis continue to linger in the construction/building industry even as some states loosen their respective Stay-At-Home/Shelter-In-Place orders. This webinar discusses the current environment and best practices from US and UK perspectives relating to job site protocols and contractual provisions intended to aid contractors/builders/owners in compliance as well as shielding them from potential claims.
