  • Description
    There are few people without a horror story about construction jobs. From contractors who fail to show to misguided plans workers who spend half the day on their lunch hour, these types of stories plague the construction industry. But there are always two sides and contractors have their own justifiable complaints—with clients who don’t pay and last minute changes to agreed- upon plans. This CLE course will explain the Mechanic’s Lien Act in Illinois, designed specifically to ensure contractors are protected against non-payment. The course will explain the act in detail and the legal ramifications of defending a contractor even in the most extreme cases as well as targeted strategies to benefit clients on both sides of the divide.
