Why Karalynn Cromeens?

Unparalleled Perspective:

Not only does Karalynn have the expertise of someone with 17 years in construction law under her belt, but she was also raised in a family full of subcontractors—and while in law school, began a material supply company with her husband. Her experience within the industry spans to cover every element of the blue-collar workforce, allowing her a vast perspective with which to approach a problem. She has run a business, she has defended subcontractors legally, and she has experienced the work and labor that goes into subcontracting first-hand. If anyone knows what tradies need most, it’s Karalynn.

Custom-Built Content:

What especially sets Karalynn apart is the unique nature of her contributions. Every presentation or blog is individually catered to the conference or publication’s audience, theme, and goals. Contributions are developed after in-depth conversations with the partner’s team. Due to her broad spectrum of experiences, Karalynn can adjust her messaging to any kind of contractor and can cover any area of construction leadership and law that suits the needs of the client.

Solution-Driven Mindset:

Karalynn’s approach to all her presentations, interviews, and blogs is to inform her audience and equip them with proven, protected solutions that they can put into practice on their own after it is over. Her goal is to educate, inform, and protect her audience, so every attendee, listener, or reader can leave the experience with a new understanding, and often a new skill.

Clear, Easy-To-Understand Delivery:

Legal terminology is not known for clarity, but with Karalynn at the helm of the discussion, the convoluted language simply melts away. A cornerstone of Karalynn’s approach is her “Plain English” terminology. She believes all parties should be able to fully understand the language in their contracts and seeks to lead the industry in making this the norm. That being the case, it is a top priority that all her presentations and blogs are digestible for all members of her audience.
