Supply Chain Impacts on Construction Contracts: Legal Considerations and Risk Mitigation Best Practices

Join Dykema’s Steve Mroczkowski as he moderates a discussion with Melanie Chico and David Vanderhider as they provide updates on recent legal trends in the construction industry, with a focus on the issues of construction contract supply chain. Ongoing supply chain issues, including lack of materials, rising material costs, and even labor shortages, have led to force majeure events, increased costs, and claims for delay in construction projects. These issues can hamper the fulfillment of contractual obligations and slow down projects, leading to increased litigation and overall business disruption in the construction industry. Since supply chain issues and related legal consequences can be difficult to anticipate and prevent without careful planning, Steve, Melanie and David will discuss ways in which construction industry players can mitigate risks and position itself in the best possible way when these problems and complaints arise.
