Speaker: R. Jason Herndon

Topic: Mechanics’ Liens in North Carolina
Summary: Mechanics’ Liens in North Carolina – Where have we been, where are we now, and where are we going? Substantial changes over the course of the last year have dramatically altered the mechanics’ lien “playing field” for engineers and all other construction project participants. This presentation will discuss the evolution of those changes, what those changes mean for engineers who want to protect and enforce their rights, and what additional changes may be on the horizon.
