Please join Nossaman partners, Evan Caplicki, Bernadette Duran-Brown, and Edward V.A. Kussy, and associate David Miller at TRB’s 58th Annual Workshop on Transportation Law. TRB’s 58th Annual Workshop on Transportation Law will be from July 21-24, 2019 in Cleveland, Ohio.  Each year, the workshop attracts 150 to 175 lawyers, engineers, and transportation planners.  The workshop provides opportunities to meet and hear from federal, state and local government transportation attorneys and private transportation practitioners from around the country. 

Mr. Caplicki will be a member of the panel “Risk Allocation – Mitigation.” The panel will discuss the entire lifecycle of risk assessment and management for public works projects, starting with the identification and allocation of risks at a project’s early stages, contractual considerations to embody the owner’s desired risk sharing mechanisms, how a risk profile affects funding, price estimates, and contingencies, and finally, enforcement of risk sharing provisions.

Ms. Duran-Brown’s session will discuss “Right Of Way Best Practices in Light of Recent Trends and Developments in Eminent Domain and Land Use Law.”  Her panel will explore recent developments in eminent domain law, explain how these evolving rules can influence the timing and cost of right of way acquisition, and discuss best practices for keeping this changing legal landscape from derailing your project's schedule and budget.

Mr. Kussy will be a speaker and panel member of “Past, Present and Future of Legal Ethics.” The session will examine the intersection of technology and ethics. Specifically, panelist will discuss the impact of technology on attorneys’ professional responsibilities.

Mr. Miller will be a panel member on "Bridging Plans and Projects: How PEL Eliminates Duplication."  The session will explore the various authorities for Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL), how they work, what is the state of practice in this area, and what might be in the future for this concept as the Administration implements its One Federal Decision policy.
