Construction claims present complex factual and legal challenges. When disputes arise, keeping complex and global projects moving is paramount. Phil Bruner, Director of JAMS Global Engineering & Construction practice group and co-author of the authoritative treatise on American construction law will moderate a panel discussion featuring:

• Paul Bruno, former Managing General Counsel, Fluor Corporation (Dallas)
• Katherine Gurun, former Sr. Vice President & General Counsel, Bechtel Corporation (San Francisco)

Together, these former generals counsel will discuss the lifecycle of construction disputes, what they most wanted from arbitrators and outside counsel when they were the client and how that experience informs their alternative dispute resolution practices.
