Join us for this webinar, where we'll unpack the legal principles of contract interpretation.

With decades of industry experience and certifications, as well as being a current university educator, our speaker, Greg Starzyk, will share insight on the legal principles that give meaning to the words in the contract documents and how they are typically interpreted. 

Joining Greg will be Chandler Brooks, Procore's Director of Regional Marketing. Chandler brings his experience in construction to lead a fireside discussion addressing burning questions around how to interpret your contract during these times affected by COVID-19. By better understanding these contract documents and their meanings, contractors are enabled to make better decisions for their projects and business, and ultimately, avoid unnecessary claims and achieve better project outcomes.

Register today to gain valuable insight on interpreting your construction contracts.
