Frantz Ward is pleased to share that construction attorney Allison Taller Reich
is appointed to the American Bar Association (ABA) Forum on Construction Law’s Technology Committee.

The Forum’s mission is to serve the construction industry through education and leadership while “Building the Best Construction Lawyers.”
Allison focuses on all aspects of construction law, including drafting, negotiating, and revising contracts; assisting clients manage claims, projects, and schedules in real time to keep projects moving; and resolving disputes between her clients. She strives to obtain the best possible result for her clients at the earliest opportunity. Because of this, Allison engages in negotiations and mediations before and in addition to arbitration hearings and litigation proceedings including trials.

Allison is involved in several legal and professional associations. She is the Vice President of the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association. Allison also is a Board Member and Membership Committee Co-Chair for the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), which provides professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more to women in the construction industry.
