AVAILABLE COURSE TOPICS

Listed below are just a few of the topics I have addressed in 30 years of giving seminars and courses regarding construction law, public works and government contracts. All of my courses are regularly updated to reflect changes in codes and regulations, as well as recent court decisions. If your organization, company or public entity is interested in a course focusing on one or more of the topics below, let us give you a proposal. A two hour course held at Lubka & White’s office can cost as little as $500.

We are willing to customize courses for your organization alone. By example, we can provide your people with a paragraph by paragraph review of your standard contract or we can examine a challenging situation your company has faced and provide guidance regarding how to handle that type of situation in the future.
