- Texas Construction Law Issues in 2021. Covid continues to impact Texas construction in many ways. Specific problems include rising building material costs, supply chain delays, subcontractors who are unwilling to work, and labor shortages.
- Staying professional on Zoom. Join Zoom meetings early so you have time to find links, log in, deal with internet problems, and make sure you look good on camera. When joining especially important meetings, use your computer or iPad instead of a phone – the connection quality is better.
- Be a good teammate and advance your career. Be proactive at your law firm by volunteering for projects and seeking learning opportunities. Be willing to talk with opposing counsel after a case ends, and ask for their observations, tips, and advice – this is an excellent opportunity to become a better lawyer and build your referral network.
