You may (or may not) have heard of these online phenomenons called AMAs – short for “Ask Me Anything.” We’re excited to introduce our take on this popular Q&A – the first of many “Ask Nate Anything” events. The purpose is to provide a construction law Q&A for anyone who has questions about lien rights, requirements & deadlines, or getting paid on a construction project. (And more!)
But first, who is nate?
Nate Budde is the Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel at zlien. He graduated from Stanford University (B.A.) and Tulane Law School (J.D.), and is a licensed attorney in Louisiana with experience in construction law and credit management.
At zlien, Nate manages and oversees the complex matrix of lien law (what we call the Lien Genome™) that powers the zlien platform. He regularly contributes articles to our blogand writes for other publications such as Construction Business Owner, Construction Executive’s Risk Management newsletter, and MultiBriefs to help everyone at construction companies understand and take advantage of their lien rights in order to get paid.

Note: The Ask Nate Anything chat is intended for general informational purposes and as an opportunity to obtain lawyer-provided legal information. It should be used only as a starting point for addressing your legal issues. The legal information in the chat is not the provision of legal services, and accessing the chat, asking a question, or corresponding with a lawyer via the chat, does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and zlien, which is not a law firm, nor you and any lawyer. It is not a substitute for talking with a lawyer licensed to practice in your jurisdiction about your specific legal issue in person. You understand that questions and answers or other postings are not confidential and are not subject to attorney-client privilege.
