Hot Topics Over Hot Breakfast: The New AIA 2017 Contract Documents - Risk Allocations and Business Implications

September 7, 2017
8:00 - 9:30 a.m. (CDT)
Miller Canfield, 225 W. Washington Street, Suite 200, Chicago IL 60606

You’re invited to join Miller Canfield lawyer Larry Woodard, in-house counsel and corporate executives for “Hot Topics over Hot Breakfast”.  The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has released the 2017 versions of many of its popular forms of construction contracts.  Some of the changes are complete demolitions; some are nuanced cosmetic changes.  All changes have consequences and many changes have significant ramifications for all players at the construction table.  This seminar will be an informal, discussion-style overview of the major changes to the 2017 AIA construction contract forms, the shift in risk to the parties and the economic impact of the changes.

Larry has represented Fortune 500 companies, developers, regional and national banks, institutional investors, special servicers, higher education institutions, units of local government, REITs, contractors, landlords, tenants, condominium associations, receivers and real estate brokers in the development, management, financing, leasing, zoning, acquisition and disposal of their real estate interests. He has handled many complex transactions involving multiple parties, properties and lenders, while encompassing many states—and has negotiated deals of all sizes and structures. His practice also extends into construction law, corporate transactions and asset protection, as well as loan workouts, mortgage foreclosures, construction and mechanics lien litigation.
