An excerpt from one of the articles

Identifying the Prime Contractor/Constructor
By Kim T. Duong, Partner and Madeline E. Boyce, Associate, Forbes Chochla LLP and Kabir Shaal, Restoration Contractors Organization of Canada

The risks associated with being the prime contractor on a jobsite in the context of property insurance repairs are not well documented so the RCOC collaborated with Forbes Chochla LLP to research and report on this subject. Findings are presented in this article. Several parties become involved when restoration work is required on an insurance claim for property damage loss. In addition to the insurer, the policyholder, and the restoration contractor, an independent insurance adjuster or a Third Party Administrator is often appointed. Frequently, multiple sub contractors are also involved. Clarity of accountabilities is often blurred as a result.
