Our Speaker:

Bruce E. Kauffman, Esquire founded the Firm in 1978, and since that time has represented countless businesses and individuals on a wide range of legal issues. Although primarily focusing on construction, business and corporate law, Bruce also maintains an active Estates and Trust practice. Bruce counsels businesses on day-to-day matters such as employment issues, contracts, as well as the structuring of complex corporate transactions, mergers and buy-outs.

Mr. Kauffman speaks regularly on behalf of the American Subcontractors Association and is a passionate advocate for the industry. Mr. Kauffman has successfully prosecuted numerous mechanic’s liens, payment bond claims, Trust Fund actions and related construction litigation. Notwithstanding, Bruce largely practices preventative law, ensuring that his client’s contracts do not unfairly shift risk and unfavorable terms to the subcontractor.

Mr. Kauffman was recognized as a Maryland Super Lawyer in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 where only 5% of Maryland attorneys are chosen annually.
