Riezman Berger, P.C. Attorneys Present to Local Construction Contractors and Suppliers
On November 5, 2009, Nelson L. Mitten and Michael P. Wolf presented “Show Me The Money! Advanced Collection Strategies for Contractors and Suppliers”. Those in attendance included members of the American Subcontractors Association, Mason Contractors Association of St. Louis and the SITE Improvement Association. The seminar focused on the tools necessary for contractors and suppliers to ensure that they are timely paid and paid in full. Recognizing that due to the current economy, as well as the nature of the construction industry, contractors and suppliers face numerous financial obstacles, Nelson and Michael offered those in attendance solutions for securing timely payment of monies owed to them.
Michael and Nelson would like to thank all those who attended the seminar for making it such a complete success.

Nelson has been lead counsel for trials and appeals at all levels of both the state and the federal court systems. Many of the successful appeals have resulted in new substantive law being made, including the decision in Investors Title Company v. Hammonds, 218 S.W.3d 288 (Mo. 2007), in which the Missouri Supreme Court held that a subdivision of County government may be liable in a suit for quantum meriut because such a claim was contractual in nature, and therefore sovereign immunity was not applicable.
