Maynerd Steinberg has over 30 years of experience, concentrating in construction law, insurance law, and professional liability. Prior to becoming an attorney, he practiced as an architect and remains a registered architect in the State of Illinois. Now, focusing on construction and damage to real property, he represents architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, property owners, and insurers, who provide first party property, third party liability and professional liability coverage, on a full range of legal matters.
Mr. Steinberg has represented construction-industry clients on matters including professional liability, construction contracts, mechanics’ liens, and bond and surety claims, as well as insurance requirements and coverage issues.

Before construction begins, he negotiates contract terms and conditions with special emphasis on insurance requirements and risk-shifting provisions.
