On March 12, Gordon & Rees Seattle partner Allen W. Estes will speak at Law Seminars International’s P3P Workshop on public-private partnership projects, to be held at the Washington State Convention Center. Attendees will learn about tips and tools for successful contracting and dispute resolution.
Estes, co-chair of the day-long event on financing and constructing, will sit on two panels. The first presentation, titled “Project Conception: Anatomy of a P3P and Tips for Selecting the Right Approach,” will begin at 8:30 a.m. Estes will discuss Washington’s approach and how it may differ from what private sector participants are accustomed to in other jurisdictions.
Estes’ second presentation – “Dispute Resolution: Terms to Facilitate a Long-Term Relationship for Long-Term Projects” – will begin at 4:30 p.m. Estes will offer a neutral perspective on terms that work and those that can lead to a breakdown in a working relationship.
Estes is a member of Gordon & Rees’s Construction, Commercial Litigation and Green Building Practice Groups, where he represents private owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers in all phases of project administration and delivery, including contract drafting/negotiation, project performance, project disputes, project closeout, and warranty issues. He advises clients on procurement issues, bid protests, and compliance for federal, state, and municipal contracts, and provides advice to owners, contractors and suppliers on transportation, infrastructure, marine, water/waste water, power and building projects.
