A notice of a design issue or design claim is a serious matter.
A serious matter merits, and requires, a serious response. When an issue or claim is asserted, a number of steps should be taken, and a thorough, meaningful investigation should be conducted.
Join us for our June Roundtable on Thursday, June 24, 2021 presentation as we will:
- Address the steps to be taken to evaluate an allegation that a design error or omission was made. We will outline the process for investigating, and then working to resolve, error and omission allegations through dispute resolution, and, if necessary, trial.
- Discuss the identification of issues underlying a claim, experts to be retained and how experts fit into the process, and the documents to be preserved and generated in the course of an investigation and dispute resolution process.
- Discuss the proper response to discrete legal filings, such as a third-party subpoena, that design professionals routinely face and that require the same comprehensive evaluation and process.
