Legal Update on Trends in Construction- Testimony Mike Kulik

Thanks to Jordan for taking the time to present a legal update to the CSI Syracuse Chapter last night.   The round table approach to this presentation allowed the attendees to gain knowledge and share experiences on the topics discussed. 

Topics discussed: 

  1. Language to include reserving rights to include for unexpected tariff impacts
  2. Trends in dispute resolution going back to litigation vs. arbitration
  3. Retainage bonds becoming an option for early release of retainage
  4. NYS protective lien laws
  5. Why funds paid by the owner are considered “trust funds” in NYS
  6. National trends in the labor laws

All the attendees took away useful information and were introduced to another construction legal professional for future reference.
