The Importance of Client Education

As construction attorneys, we relish the opportunity to vigorously defend our clients in the courtroom.  As risk management lawyers, however, we work very hard to make sure clients can avoid litigation.  A key component of our risk management practice is to educate our clients about the intricacies of construction law in such a manner that the material is accessible and easily put into place on a variety of construction projects.  Most contractors know their area, but could be completely unfamiliar with the minutiae and complexity of contracts, zoning boards, risk management, OSHA regulations, and other potential construction risks. At Manion Stigger, we take the time to educate our clients on how best to navigate these matters so the client can be in control of their project while still getting expert guidance.
