Construction credit has often been referred to as unique because projects involve layers of interested parties who depend on money trickling down to them. If things don’t run smoothly, you could find yourself in need of legal support. Under any circumstances, hiring a lawyer can seem like a daunting task, but when it comes to a construction project, you want to make sure you have a lawyer that understands the process.
On Wednesday (Sept. 23), NACM is offering a webinar, “How to Find, Hire and Manage a Lawyer: 10 Questions You Need to Ask,” from 3-4 p.m., that will provide some tips on what to look for when choosing a lawyer. Alexander Barthet, Esq., a mechanical engineer board certified in construction law by the Florida Bar Association, will lead attendees through a series of topics they should follow when looking for a lawyer: questions to ask or not ask; how to reduce legal fees and costs; overcoming disputes with outside counsel; and how to switch from one lawyer to another.
Barthet has served as a speaker at NACM’s Credit Congress as well as All South affiliate events. His articles have appeared in the Construction Lawyer, American Bar Association Journal of the Forum on the Construction Industry; Building Florida; Southeast Construction; Construction Executive; and Florida Home Builder. He also sits on the Miami-Dade Council of the Florida East Coast Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors.
