Mark D. Shifton Participated in a Panel Presentation Entitled “LEED Perspectives: The Legal Risks of Green Building”


On June 2, 2016, Mark D. Shifton participated in a panel presentation entitled “LEED Perspectives: The Legal Risks of Green Building,” at the DRI’s Annual Construction Law Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. This program discussed the background and recent history of “green” building and green building litigation, and featured a discussion on the unique legal risks often presented (and predicted to be presented up with increasing frequency) by green building projects, such as unique issues of insurance coverage, indemnity and risk transfer, regulatory issues, and tolling of statutes of limitation.
