Clark Hill Attorney P. Douglas Folk Quoted in Engineering Inc.
PHOENIX, AZ – Clark Hill attorney P. Douglas Folk was quoted extensively in “Campaign for the Credentialed: Engineering Takes on the Challenge of Defending State Professional Licensure”, the lead article in the March/April 2017 Issue of Engineering Inc. Folk, a former member of Arizona’s licensing board for design professionals, discusses an alarming increase in legislative efforts to limit or eliminate the need for professional licensure of architects, engineers, and geologists. He warns that legislation promoting competition should not put the public at risk by loosening oversight of professionals responsible for the public health, safety, and welfare. He also recommended how professional licensing can be regulated in full compliance with federal antitrust laws.
Folk advises and represents design professionals in compliance and disciplinary matters involving professional licensing boards across the US. Drawing on his extensive experience in business transactions and commercial litigation, he is an advocate and trusted advisor for architects, engineers, and contractors in the fields of construction law and professional liability defense.
