Managing Risk and Maximizing Rewards… Differently

Design and construction can be complex and dispute prone. Even simple projects involve designers and builders with specialized roles. Careful coordination is required, as everyone must deliver as they promise for projects to succeed.

Facing this, you seek predictability. You want your expectations met. You want good work for a fair price. You strive for ‘win-win’ outcomes. Opportunity and risk are abundant in design and construction. And YOU have to manage all this and more! 

So how do you mitigate risk and maximize rewards? With an experienced Chicago-based design and construction attorney who can help prevent and resolve disputes, and help you guide your projects towards success.  

As a former partner at Schiff Hardin LLP, Jeremy has had considerable success litigating and arbitrating disputes. But his emphasis on early, cost-efficient dispute resolution is what distinguishes him from other attorneys. He also helps clients negotiate contracts with a fair and balanced allocation of risk – focusing on who can best manage those risks, and the cost-benefit of the deal.
