Ed Seglias is quoted in Construction SuperConference newsletter. When asked about his level of optimism when it comes to in-person events, Ed answered, “With the vaccine rollout and businesses reopening, we are hopeful that hybrid and in-person events will start coming back soon and that by December trade events and business conferences will be able to accommodate fully in-person attendees. Even in our practice, we are optimistic that we will be able to return to in-person appearances in court and that more construction projects will be started.”
