The goal of this CLE course is to familiarize counsel with the complicated notice, service, filing, and recording requirements for mechanic's liens on public and private projects, many of which are strictly enforced - using Ohio as an example.

Counsel will also learn to identify key issues and how to prepare related documents.

Key course points are:
• Familiarity with notice requirements to avoid "traps for the unwary".
• Exposure to custom language and standard forms.
• Ability to generate a check-list of lien requirements.
