Senior Shareholder Gregory M. Bergman will be moderating a panel, “Public Construction Projects – How to Get It Right,” at the Association of California Water Agencies (“ACWA”) at its Fall 2012 Conference, “California Water … The Next Generation.” The panel is scheduled for 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM on December 5, 2012. The Conference is being held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego.
Greg was named a 2012 California Super Lawyer, was named one of the “Top 10 Environmental Lawyers” in the country by United States Lawyer magazine (2007-2012), and is a member of the ABOTA (American Board of Trial Advocates), a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America (only one-half of 1% of American lawyers are accepted), and on the American Inns of Court. Greg’s membership in these elite trial lawyer groups allows us to maximize an early evaluation of opposing attorneys and experts.
Senior Shareholder John P. Dacey will be the first panelist. His presentation is on “R.I.S.C. – Risks in Public Construction.” John has been recognized as a California Super Lawyer for the past 6 years in Construction Law and has successfully resolved over 500 public and private works disputes. He was the chief outside attorney behind Los Angeles Unified School District’s $29 billion construction program, and recently served as Chairman of a Citizen’s Independent Oversight Panel that made recommendations for improvements to Los Angeles Community College District’s $6 billion building program. The Panel’s Recommendations received high praise and are now being implemented by the District.
The panel also includes distinguished speakers Eileen Diepenbrock, Mark Budwig, and Mark Parsons. They will be presenting on a wide range of topics including claims, indemnity, contract documents, and construction project experiences at the Metropolitan Water District.
