My partner Colm Nelson and I are on the panel of a seminar on June 5 sponsored by the Seminar Group.  The program is called “Bidding Public Works & Construction Contracts.”  There is still time to sign up at the Seminar Group website.  Colm is talking about insurance.  For my presentation, I took the opportunity to update Chapter 8 in our Stoel Rives treatise on Construction Liens in Washington.  That’s the chapter about “Lien-Like Remedies on Public Projects” and it covers bonds, retainage, and prompt payment requirements.  You can get the updated chapter by going to the seminar, or you can download the whole book by going to the Stoel Rives web page, clicking on “Legal Insights” at the top, and then searching for books with the key word “lien”.
