What to Expect You're Expecting (Litigation) - with McKercher LLP


We are excited and pleased to bring our members a legal information session over a hot breakfast, from trusted Lawyer and Senior Associate Caroline Smith of McKercher LLP.  In her presentation, Caroline will take us through the steps of a construction lawsuit, from start to finish(es)!


What to Expect When You're Expecting (Litigation)

Lawsuits cost you.  They cost time, money, energy, and more.  You can minimise those costs by preparing, and you get prepared by learning what to expect.  

This session will go through a typical construction litigation, with plenty of opportunities for questions throughout.  From top to bottom, this session will cover:

  • How a claim gets started
  • Options for responding to a claim
  • How other companies can get brought into a lawsuit
  • Mandatory mediation
  • Document production
  • Questioning
  • Pre-Trial Conferences
  • Trial
  • Summary judgment
  • Judgment enforcement
  • Costs
  • Settlement negotiations
  • How making an insurance claim affects a lawsuit


This session will also include tips that will help you make good decisions when your lawyers ask for instructions (the best way to tell your lawyer what to do)!
