Speakers: Marion T. Hack and John H. Conrad

November 7-9, 2018
2018 Design-Build Conference & Expo, 'The Ten Most Important Legal Issues in Design/Build Agreements'

Marion T. Hack, a partner in Pepper's Construction Practice Group, and John H. Conrad, an associate in the Construction Practice Group, will be presenting at the 2018 Design-Build Conference & Expo taking place on November 7-9, 2018 in New Orleans, LA. Their presentation is titled “Is There a Doctrine in The House: 12 Legal Doctrines That Impact Design-Build” taking place on Thursday, November 8 at 3:15-4:15 PM.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the landmark case of U.S. v. Spearin (1918), which gave rise to the “Spearin Doctrine” of implied warranties. This program will focus on a dozen of the more common legal “doctrines” and how those might come into play on a design-build project.

Topics will include:

  • The Spearin Doctrine
  • The Economic Loss Doctrine
  • The Acceptance (or Accepted-Work) Doctrine
  • The Severin Doctrine, The Work-For-Hire Doctrine
  • The Cardinal-Change Doctrine
  • The Superior Knowledge Doctrine
  • The Doctrine of Contra Proferentem
  • The Impossibility-of-Performance Doctrine
  • The Doctrine of Promissory Estoppel.

For two decades, design-build practitioners, specialty contractors, and public and private owners have gathered annually for the Design-Build Conference & Expo, the largest gathering of the year for the design-build market and the only event centered exclusively on design-build. The Design-Build Conference & Expo includes attendees and exhibitors from across all design and construction sectors.
