Brian Dobbs has negotiated and drafted construction and design contracts for real estate projects throughout the United States with a total value of more than $1 billion. Working with small start-up companies to large multi-national corporations, including a significant number of large healthcare and hospital companies, Brian drafts, reviews and negotiates design and construction contracts for all types of commercial and industrial projects. Because construction is one of the unique areas of law practice where transactional and litigation legal work intersect, Brian’s diligence on the transactional side allows him to assist clients in avoiding project disputes, resolving disputes and, when they cannot be easily resolved, litigating or arbitrating those disputes. In essence, his experience in one realm gives him a unique perspective on the other, and allows him to protect his clients’ interests throughout a project’s life cycle.
