Tips for Managing Design-Build Risks Through Insurance
Presented by Debbie Sines Crockett | Cheffy Passidomo, P.A.
 
When assuming greater design responsibility, Design Builders must protect themselves from ever-increasing risk. From contract drafting to final payment and beyond, it is essential for today’s Design Builders to understand their potential exposure and liability when implementing strategies designed to shift risk and minimize liability, particularly through insurance.  Attend this seminar to learn the top 10 things Design Builders and Owners should know about insurance coverage, risk shifting, and straddling insurance gaps.

Debbie is experienced in representing policyholders of all types of insurance policies in litigation against carriers from the trial level through appeal, in both state and federal courts. She has an emphasis in complex insurance recovery issues such as additional insured status and contractual indemnity, and her practice includes all aspects and types of insurance recovery, including insurance denials, claim representation, risk transfer mechanisms, and both first and third party bad faith/extra-contractual claims.
