Architect and Engineer Liability in Texas

The problems presented to design professionals in the coming decade include not only business issues, but also liability issues. This OnDemand Webinar is intended to provide design professionals with legal input - not advice - concerning how to avoid liability claims. Avoidance can occur through client and project selection and through contracting. This program will provide guidance on contractual provisions which can shift responsibility and also be beneficial in client selection. The OnDemand Webinar will also address what happens when a claim is made and how the design professional can respond. The program will highlight recent developments that provide benefits to design professionals when claims are made and will provide instructions on how to take advantage of the tools available.
