  • Indemnification
  • Defense obligation
  • Limitation of liability

  • Retaining Ownership of Documents

In addition to discussing negotiation strategies for A&E firms, Doug and the other panelists analyzed emerging contractual issues.

Doug concentrates his litigation practice on construction, design professional and legal liability, products liability and first-party property cases. He has tried numerous cases for design professionals, architects, engineers and surveyors. The contours of Illinois construction law have in large measure been shaped by the appellate decisions from the cases Doug has handled at the trial level.
