This dynamic and highly topical session will explore the ever-changing legal landscape with regard to climate change and examine how design and construction professionals are being held to increasingly higher levels of scrutiny in the advent of more frequent/severe storms, wind events, flooding, rain/snow, earthquakes, and the like. We also will discuss solutions and how clients and insureds can protect themselves in this challenging new era.
