Seyfarth Shaw LLP invites you to join us for a breakfast briefing specifically designed to show managing agents how to deal with the complex issues involved in resolving problems in newly constructed and rehabilitated buildings in a way that minimizes the disruption to your management responsibilities.

We know that managing agents can be pulled into acting as construction consultants. From analyzing each party's rights and obligations under offering plans, to hiring architects, mold experts, structural and mechanical engineers, our experienced team of construction attorneys and litigators have coordinated all aspects of construction defect cases for our clients over the years -our role is to allow you to focus on managing your portfolios - not construction problems.

In this breakfast briefing, we'll discuss:

  • The process of identifying the defects
  • Hiring the right experts
  • Forensic exams or reports
  • Resolving with the Sponsor the curing of the problems and the responsibility of paying the related constructions costs and professional fees
  • Roadblocks and hurdles in the process - and how to avoid them

Seyfarth Shaw Partner Dennis Greenstein will moderate a lively panel discussion featuring Seyfarth Shaw Construction Partners Sara Beiro Farabow and Joseph Barra, Litigation Partner Richard Resnik, and Architect Howard Zimmerman, and offering information specifically targeted to managing agents.
