Representative Matters

A full list of noteworthy matters and accomplishments for our clients would fill many pages, but here are a few examples of our work:

  • We successfully defended an award to our client on a $60 million highway reconstruction project from a bid protest by its competitor.
  • We successfully represented a government contractor in proceedings in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the Wisconsin State Court, involving issues with the propriety of a Contracting Officer's Final Decision, issues of defective design, and impact of defense tender rejections under indemnification agreements and additional insured endorsements.
  • We have successfully represented one of the largest contractors in the nation on construction and construction-related matters throughout the State of Arizona.
  • We successfully represented a client in matters involving insurance and scope of repair issues for a defective concrete floor of an approximately 200,000-square-foot warehouse structure.
  • We have successfully represented a regional industrial contractor under the American Arbitration Association Construction Arbitration Rules in a dispute with a municipality concerning a multimillion-dollar wastewater treatment plant project.
  • On the transactions side, we negotiated and drafted one of the country's first multiparty Integrated Project Delivery contracts, whereby owners, designers, and builders come together at the outset of a project and forge collaborative legal agreements. These are being shown to produce projects that outperform those delivered using more traditional methods, in terms of cost, schedule, quality, and safety.
