Luncheon - Design Professionals' Liability:
What you don’t know can hurt you.

January 8, 2015 - 11:30
Sandman Hotel, Vancouver

Presented by Glen Boswell – Partner, Clark Wilson LLP

What are the main sources of design professional liability?

How long can a design professional be liable for errors?

What protection does liability insurance provide?

What can design professionals do to minimize liability risk?

Glen Boswall will address these questions and more as he reviews the law governing design professional liability arising from tort, contract, and statute. His discussion will include standard of care, fiduciary duty, Letters of Assurance, field review, and building codes and what protection liability insurance does and does not provide.

Glen is a partner at the Vancouver law firm Clark Wilson LLP. He has extensive experience in construction and insurance law and has litigated many cases including a recent major lawsuit concerning the BC Place roof replacement project.
