On June 9, 2017, my colleague, Karl Oles, and I (both from the Seattle office of Stoel Rives) will present at the annual meeting and seminar for WSBA’s Construction Section, which this year is entitled Washington Statutes Affecting Construction. This seminar, located at the WSBA Conference Center in Seattle, will feature in-depth discussions regarding important topics to the construction lawyer: statutory limitation periods, bidder responsibility and public works solicitations, top 10 mistakes in prevailing wage compliance, contractor registration requirements and condominium issues. In addition, Karl and I will present on the subject of Washington construction lien claims and how the Washington statutes governing lien rights and claims are applied to different factual scenarios. The seminar will also include information regarding new laws and legislative developments in the 2017 legislative session, an update on significant cases impacting the construction industry in Washington and ethical considerations for the construction law practitioner. Lastly, attendees will gain insightful judicial perspectives on litigating complex construction cases from a panel of three King County Superior Court judges.
