    2019 Midwinter - Public Construction Projects: Not Always a Hollywood Ending

    Millennium Biltmore Hotel, 12 PM PST

    We invite you to trade the cold and gray of winter in January for the blue skies and warm breezes of Tinseltown. Yes, the Forum is finally returning to Los Angeles, and on no less than the eve of the Super Bowl of movies - the Academy Awards. Our program, "Public Construction Projects: Not Always a Hollywood Ending," celebrates the town's creativity and vitality while exploring the ins and outs of the backbone of much of our national construction industry: public construction. For, where would the movies be without airports, roads, bridges, museums, water treatment plants, and filled potholes to support them? Our program is designed to answer questions about public construction law and even more importantly, to teach smart lawyers what questions to ask.

    UPDATE: Pararmount Studio Tour is SOLD OUT

    We will begin our program by answering the question practitioners and their clients ask at the start of every new year - what does the immediate future hold for public construction? We have invited exciting speakers with knowledge and expertise to answer these questions, followed by two days of substantive, interesting, and hopefully entertaining sessions designed to address large issues, intricate questions, and ethical conundrums specific to the fascinating, challenging area of public construction law. From top ten issues every construction lawyer must be aware of when dipping their legal toes into the murky waters of government contracting, to seeking payment for claims from government entities and then learning the intricacies of having to litigate with them, to the fast paced, rule based world of bid protests, our program will run the gamut of public construction law, from both a local and national perspective. There are different rules and different strategies to employ on public jobs, and our program will offer both new and experienced public construction lawyers tips and advice on how to succeed - or at the very least how to avoid a box office bust.

    We have also managed to secure incredible speakers for a practicum on legal writing that will be worth the trip itself. In addition to our fantastic program and practicum, we will be staying at the historic and beautiful Millennium Biltmore Hotel, in a downtown area surrounded by museums, shopping, great restaurants, and fantastic night life. We are so excited about our program, its people, and the place, and are looking forward to seeing you at a very special midwinter meeting in a very special town. See you on the red carpet!
