This is a recorded webinar from January 12, 2021.

Engineering/Architects and other professionals are occasionally required to be involved in litigation, which no one enjoys. When required, documentation and records can be critical to the case. The engineer’s ability to provide suitable records that provide and communicate the processes, documents and steps utilized by the engineer, can often be an issue as well as creating and storing complete project documentation as set out by law. Litigation could ruin a company's market advantage and reputation or lead to costly settlements or judgements. This session will cover topics to consider for documentation of engineering services, and how to minimize your risk and exposure to litigation. A Consulting Engineer and an Attorney experienced in engineering cases will discuss viewpoints and experiences that may provide insights to dealing with these issues.
