California Supreme Court Decision Increases Litigation Exposure of Architects
California Supreme Court decision in Beacon Residential v SOM expands an architect's duty of care to future residential property owners, where there is no contractual relationship.  Attendees will receive a factual background of the case and learn how the court arrived at its finding. Attendees will understand how the case is applicable to California architects and design professionals, and how this potential liability will impact future business for California Architects.

The participant will learn how the California Supreme Court decision will impact ongoing business.

The participant will learn how the California Supreme Court decision creating a duty to future homeowners can be expanded to commercial construction defects as well as creating additional exposure for other design professionals.
