AALRR is offering a breakfast briefing series to prepare facilities and purchasing departments with the tools and knowledge needed to get you through the busy construction contracting season coming up this spring and summer.

Claims-oriented contractors and contractors who don’t have their act together have a common theme of making claims on projects. This seminar addresses the best ways to watch for claims and the best way to avoid a lawsuit.
