Renaud Cook Drury Mesaros, PA (RCDM) hosted valued clients and fellow attorneys last week for ALFA International’s Regional Construction Practice Group seminar in Phoenix.

The Construction practice group hosted the six-hour program on Thursday, February 6, at the Renaissance Glendale Hotel & Spa. RCDM attorney Scott Conlon led the welcome and introduction for the program and Miles Masog helped lead a presentation, while attorneys Jeff Hunter, Karl Gruse and Robert Smith and other firm staff were in attendance and provided support.

Presentations included a look at the “acceptance doctrine,” addressing environmental hazards, right to repair statutes, and a data security update. Following the program, the group headed over to Gila River Arena where they attended a social reception, dinner and Arizona Coyotes game.

“RCDM would like to thank all of the attendees for taking the time to join us for this ALFA regional seminar,” Masog said. “This was an amazing opportunity for us to provide clients with updates on issues important to their business and valuable insight into industry trends, while also strengthening existing relationships and building new ones. We value our membership with ALFA International and appreciate all of the help in making this event a great success.”

Masog was a co-presenter with Robert deRosset of Young Moore and Henderson, P.A. for the session entitled “Right to Repair Statutes – Construction Defect Litigation.” The hour-long presentation compared and contrasted the many different right to repair laws, all of which were passed in an effort to curb construction defect litigation. The panel discussed recent updates in Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. Additionally, the panel focused on what aspects of several different state laws have been successful and what aspects have fallen short of their stated goals.

The Construction practice group, headed by Masog, has decades of experience representing local, regional, and national general contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, product suppliers, and product manufacturers in high profile litigation matters.
