Mark Voigtmann, a partner at Baker & Daniels LLP law firm and contributing writer for Control Engineering magazine, was named the silver winner in the American Society of Business Publication Editors 30th annual excellence awards.
Voigtmann's series on "Legalities: Engineering and the Law" was judged the second best in the division for regular columns by a contributing writer for publications with a circulation of 80,000 or more. Winners were announced at the ASBPE's National Editorial Conference in Kansas City, Mo., recently. Judging was based on development of the subject, presentation and value to readers.
Voigtmann, an experienced construction lawyer, writes at least one column every quarter for Control Engineering, a leading voice in the $115 billion global control and instrumentation marketplace. The international publication, which is printed in five languages, provides editorial coverage on new products, breaking news and trends in control technology.
At Baker & Daniels, Voigtmann is leader of the firm's construction and real property liability practice. His law practice includes assisting clients in virtually every phase of the construction process — from negotiation and drafting of project agreements to litigation and arbitration of defect and delay claims. Voigtmann is a leading contributor to two Baker & Daniels newsletters: Construction Law Checklists and Automation and Tech Construction Checklists.
Voigtmann also serves as General Counsel to the Control System Integrators Association, an international group of more than 300 engineering and high tech firms engaged in the automation of advanced manufacturing and other process facilities, and Construction Law Counsel to the Indiana Construction Roundtable, a statewide umbrella organization of owners involved in construction.
