Mark Shifton Publishes Article in The Critical Path

Mark’s article, titled Playing Defense – The Varying Applicability of Statutes of Repose for Product Manufacturers in Construction Defect Actions discusses how various state statutes of repose operate to bar claims against contractors and design professionals relating to improvements to real property, but often afford no protection to the manufacturers of building products installed in such buildings.

Mark is a Partner in the Princeton, New Jersey, and New York City offices of Gfeller Laurie LLP, where he represents owners, design professionals, and contractors in construction disputes, and advises and represents clients on sustainable development and “green” building issues. Mark is currently the Marketing Chair of the Defense Research Institute’s Construction Law Committee.
