As litigation against home builders continues to clog the courts and drive up the costs of homeownership, how construction lawyers can help solve this challenge will be discussed during a two-day Construction Law Seminar in San Francisco on Sept. 7-8.

David Jaffe, NAHB staff vice president for construction liability and legal research, will be a panelist for a “Legal Challenges in Representation of the Home Builder” discussion on Sept. 7. Other panelists include Peter Reinhart, senior vice president and general counsel for Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., and Brian Woram, senior vice president and chief legal officer for Centex Corporation.

In addition to the home builder-specific panel, the two-day seminar will also include topics such as insurance coverage, “additional insured” obligations, litigation defense strategies, class action litigation, the development of a thriving construction law practice and more. The seminar also will feature a “hands on” session constructing scaled mock-ups of actual building components.

The seminar is open to coverage attorneys, in-house counsel for construction or engineering firms, class action coordinating counsel, construction litigators, claims professionals, home builders and product manufacturers.

The seminar is being conducted by DRI, the Chicago-based national organization of defense trial lawyers and corporate counsel.
