OUR PERSPECTIVE

Legislatures in every state have created lien and bond claim laws to protect contractors and suppliers. However, since these laws vary from state to state and change periodically, subcontractors and suppliers have lost tens of millions of dollars because they have inadvertently forfeited their lien rights as well as other legal rights.

The key to protecting and perfecting your organization's legal rights lies in your ability to understand and enforce your rights. RCS's goal is to enable subcontractors, contractors and suppliers to keep their rights alive and secure cash flow.

CLAIM ADMINISTRATION & STRATEGY

Nationwide legal access is also included in our support services package. RCS's General Counsel is also available to assist your company in the filing of claims and interpretation of laws through its network of independent Counsel located throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and beyond.
