Joe Duncan will speak at the CLM Annual Conference, which will be held at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, April 6-8, 2016. Joe’s session on Thursday, April 7th is titled, “Construction – It’s Not All About Faulty Workmanship”. This roundtable discussion will address managing product liability exposure in construction litigation. Although sometimes intertwined with faulty workmanship, product manufacturers, suppliers and distributors have unique exposure created by the strict liability, breach of warranty and negligent design and manufacturing claims that they face. The panel will discuss the classic battle between an installer and a product manufacturer/supplier. Defense and coverage strategies will be explored.
Joe has been published in the Alabama Law Review and has spoken to trade and insurance groups in regard to the many liability and litigation issues that arise in the construction industry in Alabama and the Southeast. In addition, he has participated in the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association’s Trial Academy.
