He concentrates his work across each of the firm’s core areas: real estate, construction, insurance recovery, and business. In his practice, he assists clients in matters ranging from day-to-day business issues to complex and high-end transactions and litigation.

His real estate and construction clients include project owners, developers, private equity firms, public agencies, general contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers. He also guides clients in all phases of commercial and residential construction, including property acquisitions and dispositions, construction contract preparation and negotiation, and litigation.

He regularly helps a wide range of policyholders recover the full benefits of their insurance coverage through claims and litigation. His litigation practice focuses on the resolution of commercial disputes, including breach of contract, torts, insurance coverage, construction and design, real estate, and partnership and shareholder disputes.

He provides counsel for businesses and offers a wide range of services, including entity formation and dissolution, general risk management, contract preparation and negotiation, and corporate governance issues.

He is a regular and sought-after speaker and author on insurance and construction issues across the country. He has served as vice-chair for the American Bar Association, Property Insurance Law Committee, a national group dedicated to the education and development of first-party insurance law, and contributed annually to the Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Law Journal’s publication tracking the development of insurance law.
