In addition to his litigation practice, Chris provides in-house counsel services to design firms and contractors at a cost-effective rate. Many firms and contractors cannot justify the overhead cost of a full-time lawyer and wince at the cost of having a large law firm review and opine on contract risk. Chris’ practice offers a middle ground.
Chris has reviewed and litigated claims arising out of all forms of construction agreements. He is familiar with AIA Form Agreements, ConsensusDocs, and EJDCD Forms. He can assess contract risk, negotiate contracts and purchase orders, assist in insurance procurement and bond procurement, advise on coverage matters, and provide access to a network of attorneys who can provide employment and real estate advice when those matters are outside his wheelhouse.
