Webinar: Paving the Way Toward Smoother Infrastructure Projects

Join the Litigation Practice Group of Mackrell International for a complimentary webinar

Paving the Way Toward Smoother Infrastructure Projects

Unexpected delays cost money…..and that often leads to finger-pointing

Whether you are a project owner, regulator, contractor, supplier or consultant, you know that large-scale infrastructure projects are complex by nature.   Fluctuating site conditions, weather, labor shortages, supply chain management glitches, obscure zoning rules or changing laws only add to the complexity and often halt progress.

As federal, state and local governments look to ramp up infrastructure projects, attorneys from Mackrell International member firms will share case studies and offer best practices in effectively handling infrastructure projects and their seemingly inevitable conflicts. By examining projects from the multiple perspectives, the attorneys will provide a more holistic view of projects and suggest workable solutions for when the unexpected strikes.
