Jeffrey Krumpe helps to solidify mechanic’s lien rights of architects, engineers, and surveyors

Jeffrey Krumpe recently participated in a successful appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court, which solidified the mechanic’s lien rights of architects, engineers, and surveyors. Agreeing with Mr. Krumpe’s client, a unanimous Supreme Court held that those design professionals who perform any service for the purpose of improving real property (even when actual construction does not proceed) are entitled to assert a mechanics lien.
