John Parnass is a construction lawyer advising clients on public and private infrastructure projects, including transit, water/wastewater systems, roads, bridges, and tunneling projects, as well as large commercial, medical, sports, and educational facilities. His practice is divided between transactional work (contracts, bid documents, specifications review) and dispute resolution.

Within this broad based practice, John’s primary areas of focus involve subsurface risk management (i.e., trenchless tunneling disputes, differing site conditions, specification and geotechnical report review), public works procurement issues (bid protests, bidder responsibility issues, legal compliance), and contract negotiation/preparation, general counseling, and claims avoidance.

Before developing his construction law practice, John held a Judicial Clerkship, under the Honorable Ellen Ash Peters, Chief Justice, Connecticut Supreme Court.
