Design professionals + project life = numerous and significant risks
Managing legal risk is more complex than ever, with greater pressure to deliver a quality design in less time and at lower cost. The risk profile for design professionals has expanded and you are now routinely called upon to assume risks which may not be insurable. This essential program is developed by legal and industry experts to help you effectively assess and mitigate your risk, and to aid you in making more informed decisions that go to the heart of your business and your professional reputation.
Redesigned for 2019 = advanced strategies + essential legal updates + case law
Design professionals are exposed to numerous risks through the course of a project, including negligence claims and other potential liabilities which can result in heavy financial costs and significant reputational damage. This information-packed program has been redesigned and will focus on how you effectively manage the legal and business risks that come with practicing as an architect or engineer. Designed and delivered by some of Canada’s leading legal and industry experts, this program will provide you with tools and practical risk management strategies that can be put to immediate use.
