“Post & Schell offered a robust platform to strengthen my practice and help meet a growing demand among their clients,” said Mr. Logan. “To be part of a group that spans the mid-Atlantic – including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., Virginia, and North Carolina – allows us to represent the interests of large contractors that operate throughout the region on both public and private projects. I am excited to be part of the continued growth of Post & Schell’s Construction Practice Group.”
