Burnett Wilson Reeder (“BWR”) shareholder Matthew L. Wilson gave a presentation on January 17, 2017, at a Live Video Webcast, “Water Intrusion/Construction Defect Claims,” put on by the Florida Bar Continuing Law Education Committee and the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section. The “webinar” focused on stucco claims and included points of view of homeowners’ counsel and builders’ counsel. Mr. Wilson’s presentation, titled “Water Intrusion Claims from the Plaintiff’s Perspective,” analyzed everything from the very inception of a stucco case all the way through the arbitration proceeding or trial. The program had a variety of impressive speakers including Derek Valkenburg, Esq. of Shutts & Bowen, Kim Ashby, Esq. of Foley & Lardner and Cary Wright, Esq. of Carlton Fields.
Over the last several years, the lawyers at BWR have been at the forefront of this emerging area of law. Though construction defect statutes have been in place since 2003, there is an incredible lack of developed law in this area. During Mr. Wilson’s presentation, he discussed some of the issues that attorneys have to contend with both on the plaintiff’s side and on the defense side.
