The Construction Suppliers Association (CSA) is a trade association working for–and advocating on behalf of–independent material suppliers throughout Georgia and Alabama. According to its website, “The association serves as the voice of its members to state and federal government. CSA also provides a wide range of educational and cost-saving programs to businesses in the building materials industry.”
“Since the majority of our clients are construction suppliers, we thought that participating in a group such as the CSA would be a natural fit,” says Cobb Law Group’s founder Mark Cobb. “Almost daily, we prepare and file liens and payment bond claims throughout the state of Georgia; in addition we offer a full-range of legal services to our subcontractor and supplier clients including business law, contract review, construction collections, and construction litigation. We are hopeful that we will continue to build our practice and improve our skills by becoming a part of this great trade association.”
Since 1936, the Construction Suppliers Association has worked tirelessly to educate suppliers, to work for sound industry legislation and to improve the building supply economy. The construction lawyers at the Cobb Law Group look forward to working with the Association in each of these areas. According to Cobb, education is a great benefit to every material supplier. “For example,” he offers, “Georgia materialmen have advantageous lien rights in Georgia, but they must understand the complexities and be diligent in preserving and enforcing their rights.”
In fact, as readers of our blog already know, Mark Cobb is a contributor (the only Georgia construction lawyer!) to a new book to be published by the American Bar Association on Subcontractor Law. It will be the first book to be printed which focuses exclusively on this unique area of law. As one of the few subcontractor law and material supplier law attorneys in Georgia, Cobb understands the needs of the industry, and he welcomes opportunities such as those offered by the CSA to meet other industry professionals.
