On Thursday, I will be joining a panel of construction attorneys and consultants to address the issue of aging infrastructure in America and, in particular, how to finance all the work that needs to be done.

Aging Infrastructure: Collapse at I-35

Our panelists include:

Christopher Montez, Thomas, Feldman & Wilshusen, LLP, Dallas, TX
Kenneth R. Baker, Hill International, Poway, CA
Sarah Biser, McCarter & English, LLP, New York, NY
Robert Rubin, McCarter & English, LLP, New York, NY
Dennis Staats, Navigant Consulting, Boston, MA

You can still register for the short webinar on the Forum’s website. Here are a number of answers that our panelists will try to answer:

  • What is the problem? Where are the major failures? 
  • What are the sources of funding?
  • How much money does the Federal Government want to pitch in?
  • What can contractors do to maximize their changes to win Federally funded work?
  • How may Public Private Partnerships help solve the problem?
  • What does it take for a PPP to be successful?
  • What can construction counsel do to help his/her clients in this arena?

If you have any questions that want answered in the webinar, it’s not too late.  Send me an email and I will make sure that one of the panelists addresses it.
