Jim O'Connor, partner and co-chair of Maslon's Construction & Real Estate Litigation Group, will present at the American Bar Association's 2016 Annual Meeting for the Forum on Construction Law. This year's meeting will be held in Nashville, Tennessee on April 27-30, 2016, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Forum on Construction Law, and the conference will feature the Forum's "Greatest Hits"—bringing back some of the most popular past programs and presenters to reprise their programs with new and interesting updates. During Jim's session titled "Noticeably Older, Arguably Wiser and Still in Need of Work: An A201 Analysis," panelists will scrutinize key provisions of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) A201 Standard General Conditions from the competing perspective of both the contractor and owner.

He represents engineers, general contractors, specialty contractors, owners, and designers in contract formation and construction matters throughout the United States. Jim is a Fellow and Governing Board member of the American College of Construction Lawyers, a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, the former Chair of the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry, and an active member of the AGC's Contract Documents and Risk Management Committees. He has published extensively in the construction law area and was selected as a 2012 recipient of the Distinguished Legal Writing Award by the Burton Awards for Legal Achievement.
