KatzAbosch hosted its first annual Construction & Real Estate Bootcamp on May 12, 2015 at the Sheraton Hotel Baltimore North in Towson, Maryland. The firm is thrilled to report a very successful event in its first year, bringing in over 90 executives from the Mid-Atlantic's construction and real estate sectors.
