Ober|Kaler Lawyer Stephen Palley Completes Construction Insurance Guide
April 22, 2011
Washington, DC - April 22, 2011 Ober|Kaler is pleased to announce the release of “Construction Insurance: A Guide for Attorneys and Other Professionals,” edited by Stephen D. Palley, a principal with Ober|Kaler, along with Tim Delahunt, John Sandberg and Pat Wielinski. Published by the American Bar Association’s Forum on the Construction Industry, this resource is a perfect practice handbook for construction lawyers, written by practitioners with considerable expertise in both construction and insurance. The guide provides overviews of individual construction insurance topic areas in each chapter, chosen because of their relevance to construction lawyers. In addition to serving as lead editor for the book, Mr. Palley co-authored two chapters – one on construction contract insurance provisions, and another on securing insurance coverage for delay related claims.
Stephen D. Palley specializes in insurance coverage counseling and litigation with a construction industry focus, and a practice limited to policyholder representation, as well as complex construction defect litigation. Mr. Palley has also advised clients on the development and negotiation of insurance and risk-transfer programs for some of the largest construction projects in the United States, including power plants, airports, sports venues and hospitals. A member of the team awarded the 2008 and 2010 Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Construction, he is a graduate of Tufts University (B.A., cum laude) and the Washington University of St. Louis School of Law (J.D.).
The book is available from the American Bar Association at Construction Insurance: a Guide for Attorneys and Other Professionals.
