“How to Modify Construction Contracts”
Aaron Dean, a Twin Cities based construction lawyer, will provide a presentation about the four ways to modify a construction contract.  Mr. Dean will provide examples from recent trials and arbitrations representing contractors who commenced suit to collect payment and defended claims by owners or general contractors.  Mr. Dean is a former President of the Minnesota Subcontractors Association and former Chair of the Construction Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association.  He has been named a Super Lawyer for more than 10 years.  In 2019, Mr. Dean represented a subcontractor who obtained an approximate $1.7 Million Arbitration Award against an out-of-state general contractor and represented a general contractor and obtained an approximate $1.2 Million Arbitration Award and complete defense of a $15+ Million claim against a project owner.
