January’s issue of Nevada Lawyer kicks off the year with an overview of current construction law and real estate issues. While our construction industry is beginning to regain its footing after the Great Recession of 2007, Nevada’s courtrooms continue to sort through the myriad claims and novel legal arguments that arose in its wake. This issue includes a history and analysis of Nevada’s one action rule and fair value defenses, authored by Phil S. Aurbach, Frank M. Flansburg and Candice E. Renka, as well as a helpful checklist, authored by Mark Albright, to be used as a resource for those pursuing/defending against mechanic’s liens claims. Attorneys with commercial-landlord clients will want to check out Marisa Maskas’ article on how to avoid liability in connection with failed tenant improvement projects. And Leon F. Mead’s article provides some interesting insight into unintended consequences arising out of certain legal protections afforded by the Nevada State Legislature to design professionals. Also featured in this issue is an article by Matthew Watson and Pearl Gallagher highlighting recent developments in real estate law, for which readers can earn one CLE credit. And Frank M. Flansburg and Candice E. Renka’s Back Story summarizing the recent and closely-watched Nevada Supreme Court decision is not to be missed. From Nevada Lawyer’s Editorial Board and the State Bar of Nevada, best wishes for a healthy and happy 2014!
