Construction Executive Quotes Joshua Quinter in Article About Top 50 Construction Law Firms
For Immediate Release
Philadelphia, PA | August 8, 2019
Joshua Quinter, a construction law attorney and Associate Managing Principal with Offit Kurman, was recently quoted in the June 2019 issue of Construction Executive magazine. Speaking about the current high demand for contract administration, Mr. Quinter offered insight into the myriad risks the firm’s construction law clients face and how an experienced legal advisor can help.
“The most common issue our clients have is getting paid for their work,” he told CE. “While there is capital to build projects, cash flow remains tight for many owners and contractors. We deal with this in how we structure our clients’ contracts, encouraging them to actively manage their A/R, and not wait to take action if they aren’t getting paid.”
Mr. Quinter also commented about the increasing “risk for project delays, quality issues, and safety concerns” as contractors experience a shortage of skilled labor. “There is pending legislation on apprenticeship ratios, training, and other issues that will impact the market,” he said. “Failing to manage safety in situations where people could get injured can end up being a big deal.”
The CE article, titled “The Top 50 Construction Law Firms®: Keeping a Sharp Eye on the Contract,” lists the top 50 U.S. law firms for contractors and construction professionals. Offit Kurman was ranked #37 on the list—one of a select group out of hundreds of candidate firms to achieve the distinction.
