(1) What is the standard of care and how is it applied to my practice?

(2) If a dispute arises on a project, what are the resolution methods available?

(3) What is indemnity, how should it be negotiated, and what changed with the enacting of new Civil Code 2782.2?

(4) How should we handle payment and termination in our contract?
