Practice Coach for AIA components


Practice Coach gives you access to legal professionals who can help you manage risks and minimize claims, whether you’re dealing with clients, contractors, employees, or others. 

Architecture firms—especially small firms—turn to Practice Coach for practical, up-to-date information about risky practice scenarios, including negotiating and interpreting contracts, resolving or mitigating disputes, determining when to hire a lawyer, and more. 

Your subscription comes with unlimited, prompt access to professionals who can help you foresee and possibly prevent costly and destructive legal problems, allowing you to stay focused on design and running your business. 

Practice Coach is available only to AIA members and geared especially to smaller firms who have questions or concerns about their business but may not be ready to engage legal counsel. Practice Coach does not provide legal advice but does offer practical suggestions and insight pertinent to your architectural practice. First-time subscribers are eligible for introductory rates, and brand-new AIA members receive a free six-month subscription. See plan rates below. 

If you’re an AIA component, your subscription also benefits your chapter’s members.
