This panel of legal experts will explain the different types of ADR, the legal ramifications of each, and the role of the mediator. You'll also learn how agreements are enforced, the costs involved, and next steps in the event that disagreeing parties are unable to come to a resolution.

In response to the 2021 Champlain Tower South Condominium collapse in Florida, Governor Phil Murphy took a crucial step toward ensuring building safety this past January by signing S2760/A4384, commonly referred to as the Structural Integrity Bill into law. The legislation aims to prevent similar tragedies in New Jersey, and requires qualifying buildings to undergo inspection within the next two years. This panel of legal and engineering experts will delve into the key components of the groundbreaking law, which include both structural integrity and reserve funding, and give boards and managers a roadmap to compliance.
