D.C.-based Levick has been hired by the Champlain Towers South Condominium Association, the homeowners association that manages the Champlain Towers South condominium building in Surfside, Florida, reports O’Dwyer’s.
The 12-story, 136-unit condominium building, which was built in 1981 and is located just north of Miami Beach, partially collapsed on June 24, leaving behind debris, death and a significant number of missing people.
According to O’Dwyer’s, “Levick director Maxwell Marcucci serves as spokesperson for the Champlain Towers South Condominium Association. Marcucci told media outlets that the condo board “retained experts and trusted experts— and at no time were they told of imminent threat of danger or collapse,” and that “If there was an issue, there were proper channels that could have been filed to take steps to rectify—up to and including evacuation.”
“Marcucci confirmed with O’Dwyer’s that Levick was retained by the condo association and is representing it, and additionally said that the agency is currently “in the midst of fielding hundreds of inquiries.””
