Mock Trial on Nov. 30

Mock Trial: “Who is Left Holding the Bag? – A Fight Over Price Escalations”

Attend a 30-40 minute "mini-trial" where the parties are fighting over who should pay for unexpected price escalations. This scenario is presented through lively and engaging testimony and even more lively and engaging cross-examination, followed by questions to and from the audience about practical ways to deal with the issues presented before they turn into a trial. Attendees decide who wins.

  • Negotiate clauses that fairly allocate price escalation and late delivery risk due to supply chain interruptions
  • Understand how current standard contract form language impacts your company's risk profiles and potential recoveries for cost escalations and supply chain interruptions
  • Implement a cost escalation/supply chain interruption risk allocation that is realistic, preserves relationships, and allows the subcontractor to help the general contractor with owner negotiations
  • Understand how evidence should be gathered and preserved and how that will affect your company's recovery in the event of a cost escalation/supply chain interruption dispute.
