Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will review the critical differences between insurance and suretyship and the interplay between CGL policies and performance bonds for losses involving defective work or property damage. Our panel of experts will discuss best practices to minimize construction project risk through both CGL policies and performance bonds.

- Faulty workmanship
- Property damage
- Owner vs. contractor vs. surety perspectives
The panel will review these and other high priority issues:
