The Construction Leading Edge Podcast

EPISODE 270: The only time contractors get involved and talk with an attorney is when something goes wrong. Do you agree?

To prove that claim, we have Attorney Marc Gravely on the podcast today, whose work is on representing owners exclusively in construction disputes with general contractors, architects, and engineers.

Atty. Gravely is here to share with us the common construction defects in building that lead to litigations, how to avoid or reduce the risk, insurance and contracts, and everything in between.
