Dan counsels clients at all tiers of the construction industry, including general contractors, subcontractors, owners, developers, and design professionals. He represents these clients at all phases of construction from contract negotiation through project closeout. Dan has considerable experience prosecuting and defending a variety of construction claims, including mechanics' liens, bond claims, contractual claims, and bid protests. Dan's approach is to help the client define its goals--whether that means bringing a project to completion while avoiding litigation or vigorously pursuing a claim for non-payment--and to achieve those objectives in the most cost effective and efficient manner as the circumstances will allow.
