Partner Jonathan A. Murphy Presents Continuing Education Program on Contractual and Environmental Issues for Engineers
Bleakley Platt partner Jonathan A. Murphy, co-chair of the firm’s Environmental practice and chair of its Construction practice, will present to engineers during a full day program titled “Engineering Law and Ethics,” a continuing education class for professional engineers.
Mr. Murphy will present on two topics, basic contract law for engineers and issues faced by engineers in the environmental arena.
The environmental segment will examine relevant and recurring practice issues encountered by engineers working on environmental issues in New York. Areas of discussion include requirements for licensed engineers certifying submissions to DEC, water quality compliance and enforcement update, stormwater permitting update and emerging issues concerning the New York City watershed. He will also explore ethical issues faced when representing clients who are facing regulatory enforcement.
The contract law primer segment will cover basic contract law principles, statutes of limitation in New York applicable to engineers, as well as conduct, acts and omissions that can constitute a breach of contract.
Mr. Murphy is an experienced and skilled advisor to clients on environmental and construction matters. In the construction arena, Mr. Murphy represents construction clients (owners, general contractors, subcontractors and design professionals) – both as claimants and respondents – in litigation, at trial, and in arbitrations on controversies ranging from construction defect claims to delay damages, wrongful termination and payment disputes. He also drafts and negotiates contracts for clients involved in private and government projects and provides legal guidance throughout a project’s life.
