Clark Hill Attorney Doug Folk to Present on the “Evolving Theories of Design – Professional Liability in Arizona” at the Maricopa County Bar Association Meeting
PHOENIX, AZ – Clark Hill attorney Doug Folk will speak on “Evolving Theories of Design – Professional Liability in Arizona,” presented by the Maricopa County Bar Association on June 10, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Folk will speak from the perspective of defense counsel for architects, engineers, and land surveyors who are the subject of professional malpractice claims. Folk will discuss the significance of recent Arizona Supreme Court in reducing the risk of litigation against design professionals for professional negligence. He served as “friend of the court” counsel for the engineering profession in each of these cases and contributed to the favorable outcome of these cases.
This program draws on Folk’s experience in representing design professionals and design-builders over more than 30 years in negotiating contracts and litigation or disciplinary matters. In addition to his active trial and appellate practice, he serves by appointment of the Governor on Arizona’s Board of Technical Registration, the State agency charged with licensing and disciplining design professionals. Folk also represents clients in litigation, arbitration, and professional license and disciplinary matters around the country.
