Villanova Was Philly Strong

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in General on Apr 5, 2016.

The City of Philadelphia and its people take a great deal of pride in any number of things – and rightly so.

The company is best known for its ability to bond very large projects, including the work to expand the Panama Canal as dramatized in a widely run 2012 television commercial. The company has been around for over 125 years; and, as a result, it has also been involved in other famous projects like the Hoover Dam and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

What’s the difference between a bond and insurance?

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in General on Mar 21, 2016.

As we kick off our construction surety law blog, let’s start with some basics. Among the most important things to understand about bonds is that they are not insurance. Many owners and contractors consider them to be the same things and often confuse the two when it is time to make a claim. Surety bonds and insurance policies are, however, not the same things.
