Angela M. Richie is Managing Partner of the Louisville office of GRSM and is Co-Chair of the Construction practice group. She frequently consults with steel fabricators and other members of the structural steel industry on issues such as: claims for non-payment; allegations of defective fabrication and erection of structural steel; OSHA violations and related retaliation actions; application of the Buy America(n) statutes and regulations; and contracts between steel fabricators, general contractors, and downstream detailers, structural engineers, and erectors. Angela is a frequent presenter at regional steel fabricator association meetings and seminars hosted by the American Institute of Steel Construction.
