Womble Carlyle attorney Allen Gibson was among the speakers at the American Bar Association’s Forum on Construction Law 2017 Midwinter Meeting.

Gibson moderated a panel discussion on “The Sustainability Forecast: Examining Current Conditions and Things to Come.” Modern construction projects increasingly turn on environmental impact and sustainability concerns. What issues do these projects raise for companies as owner, governmental and consumer expectations ripple into their space? From land development, energy and water issues to construction of weather walls, Gibson and other industry thought leaders discussed the latest developments, best practices, and leading trends.

He was joined in the discussion by Carla Christofferson of AECOM US; California Energy Commission Commissioner Karen Douglas; and former Colorado Supreme Court Justice Gregory Hobbs.

Gibson’s presentation took place Feb. 2nd in Palm Desert.

Allen Gibson has more than 30 years of trial experience in state and federal courts as well as in arbitration proceedings. He represents a wide variety of businesses involved in the construction industry including owners, developers, design professionals, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and sureties.
