Recorded On: 04/18/2022
It is not a secret that contractors have it rough in California. Sacramento regularly imposes new license requirements on contractors doing business in the state, and the businesses that do business with them must understand the potential risks and legal issues that face their customers and how to mitigate such financial risk.
In this webinar, attorney Christopher Ng will explore the basics of California contractor’s license law, discuss how to discern whether your customer is a licensed contractor and explore risk management tools when dealing with contractors.
