The Protecting Payment Series on the Larkin Hoffman Real Estate and Construction Blog focuses on the means and methods businesses in the construction industry use to protect their right to payment. It touches on issues of contracts, collections, construction liens and the corresponding interests of the developers and property owners who build. Although the author James Sander is writing from Minnesota, the series focuses on a broader application allowing readers anywhere in the country to benefit.
