In a special "bye week" presentation, Heidi Hennig Rowe (Venable LLP) will speak about “Real Estate, Risk & Construction.” Heidi Hennig Rowe is a partner in the Real Estate: Construction and Infrastructure practice groups at Venable in Chicago, IL.
At Venable, Heidi focuses on finding effective business solutions to construction-related risks. She has represented project owners, contractors, and design professionals, and understands the various concerns and priorities of the parties around the negotiation table. Her approach is also informed by her experience as a construction litigator, having prosecuted and defended construction defect claims, complicated delay claims, and claims for non-payment, among other issues, in mediation, arbitration, and litigation.
Heidi has significant experience in drafting and negotiating design and construction contracts, handling more than a billion dollars in contracts on an annual basis for projects throughout the country. In addition, Heidi regularly assists project owners with contract administration, contract enforcement, and claims management, helping project owners to resolve claims efficiently and expeditiously, before they become formal disputes.
