Partner

“Hands-on” partner involvement? That’s industry jargon. It’s more like “minds-on” and “eyes-on.” Our clients hire us for the processes we use and for the documents and construction acumen that get their work built. HLW is committed to having the right people at the table all the way through the process. Being hands-on—being present, aware, and effective—helps us to minimize the unexpected, as well as to promptly deal with the unexpected when it does arise. Relationships are built on trust; it’s simple, do what you say you are going to do. As a life-long New Yorker, I’ve learned to expect the unexpected. The city is an international melting pot of people, ideas, and cultures. There is always something new happening and some place to discover. And, new and interesting people are especially about what’s new and discoverable. The same is true for our clients. Every organization is different. What great satisfaction it is to draw out those differences and create something unique from and for them.”
