deRosset presents at Construction Defect Litigation seminar

On May 18, Robert C. deRosset was a faculty member at Construction Defect Litigation: From A to Z, a one day continuing legal education seminar in Raleigh, North Carolina. Bob gave two separate one hour presentations to the construction lawyers and paralegals who attended. The first, “Anatomy of a Defect: What it is and the Rules that Apply”, dealt with the common types of construction defect claims and the laws, regulations, and legal doctrines that control them. The second, “Litigation: Allegations, Defenses, and Proving Your Case,” explored the practical side of litigating defect claims. Bob drew on his experience as a construction lawyer practicing in North and South Carolina, as well as his insight into alternative dispute resolution gained as a lawyer certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission to conduct mediated settlement conferences in Superior Court cases to make the presentations relevant to those who practice construction law.
