PSC and Dentons to co-sponsor seminar: “Winning Private Damages Suits Stemming from Federal Services Contracts”

On Monday, November 2, 2015, the Professional Services Council (PSC) and Dentons will present a co-sponsored seminar on “Winning Private Damages Suits Stemming from Federal Services Contracts.” This seminar is important, given the increased number of personal injury and property damage lawsuits being filed against contractors doing work both domestically and internationally for DOD and other federal agencies. The seminar will address issues such as:

  • What are the key contractual provisions for minimizing damage from such lawsuits?
  • What should a company do when a lawsuit is filed?
  • What steps can a company take to be best positioned to win these suits?
  • What strategies and tactics should a company pursue, and what defenses can it raise, prior to trial?
  • What is the current case law on government contractor tort defenses such as the political question doctrine, derivative sovereign immunity, combatant activities preemption and Defense Base Act exclusivity?

Contractors do not need to be a member of PSC to attend. For more information, click here.
