Construction Advice to Minimize Risk
Don enjoys providing practical preventative advice on all aspects of a project, from bid to punch list, including: bidding (responsibility, responsiveness, mistaken bids and conditional bids); construction contracts (review and revision of AIA, AGC, ConsensusDOCS and other trade association forms, design-build, construction manager, architect, contractor and subcontractor agreements, purchase orders, and special clauses, such as No Damage for Delay and Contingent Payment); and risk management (insurance and indemnity).
Don has been involved in many of the most sizeable and important cases impacting the construction industry over the last 30 years, including disputes concerning: bid challenges, claims (differing site conditions, defects, defaults and performance bond claims, change order disputes, equitable adjustments, and liquidated damages); mechanic’s liens (notices of furnishing, notices of commencement, lien waivers, lien filings and foreclosures); and prompt payment (collections, payment bond claims, and recovery of interest and attorney’s fees under federal and state prompt payment acts).
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Don is active both as an advocate in the ADR process, and regularly serves as a mediator and arbitrator solving complex construction disputes. He has experience utilizing arbitration, mediation, dispute review boards, partnering and summary jury trials
