Brian Clifford discussed building information modeling (BIM) and how it can be a cause for concern among construction lawyers and their clients. In the Law360 article, Clifford shared how BIM's collaborative aspect can make it difficult to discern who's responsible for each part of the model and who should be held accountable.
"Dabbling in design can be dangerous for contractors, however, because doing too much may mean they’re acting as unlicensed architects, potentially a criminal offense.
