ACC Houston August Chapter Meeting CLE - Galleria Location
Hot Topics in Construction Contracting
August 9, 2022 | 11:30 am - 1:00 pm | Maggiano's Little Italy
Given the impacts of Covid-19, the supply chain crunch, world events, and changes in the law there are certainly new things to consider when entering into a construction contract and managing a construction project. Some of these concepts like force majeure and price escalations will apply to other types of commercial arrangements too. The following is a list of hot topics that are coming up frequently:
1. Force Majeure Clauses
2. Price Escalations Clauses
3. Contracting Methods (Does Cost Plus a fee or Cost Plus a fee up to a GMP make more sense now?)
4. Considerations for permitting the early purchase and storage of materials (What do I need to be concerned with?)

The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is a global bar association that promotes the common professional and business interests of in-house counsel who work for and whose primary responsibility is providing legal advice to corporations, associations and other private-sector organizations. Accordingly, the ACC Houston Chapter reserves the right to limit attendance at any of its Continuing Legal Education (CLE) events to ACC Houston Chapter members or non-ACC chapter member in-house attorneys only. If you are not an in-house attorney and wish to attend a CLE event, you may only do so, space permitting, if you are accompanied by an in-house attorney from your company or organization.
