Tiffany Raush is a partner in the Litigation Practice Group. She focuses her practice on complex construction disputes. Tiffany counsels clients primarily in the heavy industrial, midstream, and upstream energy industries, as well as other industries, with an emphasis on disputes involving major infrastructure and industrial construction projects. She has represented energy and industrial/manufacturing companies, EPC contractors, design professionals, general contractors, and subcontractors in a broad range of multimillion-dollar, time-sensitive matters involving delays, acceleration, productivity losses, scope increases, change orders, nonpayment, bid protests, and design defects, among other issues. Tiffany has represented clients in trials, appeals, and arbitrations across the United States, including Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Florida, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Ohio. Her recent engagements include negotiating contracts related to a $17 million EPC scope; pre-dispute counseling for a design-builder on a multibillion-dollar project with respect to COVID-19 claims; pre-litigation counseling for an EPC contractor negotiating $28 million in claims with an owner; litigation related to a $35 million subcontract involving $18 million in claims for delay, acceleration, and scope increases; and management of litigation related to a nearly $3 billion infrastructure project from Texas to Louisiana. As part of her commercial litigation practice, Tiffany has defended and pursued multimillion-dollar breach of contract, breach of warranty, and business tort claims. In addition to her trial-level and arbitration work, she has also successfully prosecuted and defended appeals. Tiffany is firmly committed to the idea that disputes are a risk — but not an inevitable outcome — of doing business. To minimize the likelihood of lawsuits and their associated costs and delays, she routinely delivers pre-dispute counseling that includes conducting litigation-avoidance analyses and developing prevention strategies that help smooth the path to project completion.Recognized for her legal and industry insights, Tiffany is a regular contributor to leading industry and legal journals, including publications focused on construction law. She is managing editor for an annual update on emerging construction issues and contributes each year to the chapter on construction developments in the southwestern United States. Tiffany has published numerous articles including recent articles on change order management construction in disaster-prone areas. Tiffany is committed to providing pro bono legal services and has represented underprivileged clients in guardianship matters since her first year as a lawyer. She has also worked with Kids in Need of Defense (K.I.N.D.), representing unaccompanied minors seeking legal status in the United States.
