Welcome to The “Wright Toolbox” a publication of the Construction Law Group at Wright, Constable & Skeen. Our goal with this publication is to provide relevant and timely information for the construction industry with emphasis on the construction business owners, officers and managers. We are lawyers, but we recognize that we are writing for non-lawyers. So, we will keep our articles straightforward and easy to read; no legalese or legal jargon. We know your time is valuable, so we will keep our articles short and to the point where possible.
Twice a month we will provide articles on a wide range of topics that will be of interest to construction companies in Maryland. For example, we will address such issues as construction contracts, collections, insurance, government procurement, bid protests, recent legislation, employment issues such as – discrimination, wage/hour issues, hiring/firing, sexual harassment, sick leave, ADA, FMLA, etc., false claims act, bankruptcy, arbitration, and others.
