In Right of Way – experience is everything.

CLS’s Leadership Team is comprised of skilled and seasoned professionals who are known industry wide for their expertise, creativity, and ability to solve “unsolvable” Right of Way problems. Leveraging their combined years of experience, CLS’s Leadership Team fosters a collaborative environment in which everyone works together to develop the most innovative and efficient solutions to today’s Right of Way industry challenges.

And since CLS still believes in “hands-on” management, you’ll always have a member of the Leadership Team assigned to oversee your project with CLS – from beginning to end – no matter the duration.
