General Counsel

Your “Outside General Counsel” for Unique Legal Needs

It can be expensive and impractical for small to mid-sized companies to maintain in-house counsel. Yet, design and construction involves a wide variety of legal issues and concerns. Even larger companies with attorneys on staff may find themselves in need of specialized design and construction knowledge their in-house counsel lacks. Many design and construction companies rely on lawyers to provide outside general counsel services.  

Jeremy provides general advice on a wide range of matters – large and small – to a wide variety of design and construction clients. He provides occasional counsel on discrete issues to some clients. Other clients look to Jeremy as their principal legal counsel. He helps clients address firmwide concerns that go beyond specific projects, such as intelligently managing internal operations to maximize reward and minimize risk.  Jeremy also helps clients resolve discreet problems, like making tough decisions, handling the important meeting, or crafting a delicate letter.

An experienced litigator, he has successfully prosecuted and defended countless lawsuits in over 30 state and federal court venues. However, Jeremy also values dispute avoidance and cost-efficient resolution of claims. He knows smart businesspeople are asking, “Why do we pay so much to prepare for trials that seldom occur”? 

Jeremy also has knowledge and experience with many contract types, from AIA Contract Documents to non-standard form agreements, and knows how to modify a wide variety of contract forms to serve the needs of each client and project, including Owner-Architect Agreements, Owner-Contractor Agreements, Design-Build Agreements, and many other contract types. Jeremy has the knowledge and experience to help people who design and build into smart contracts.

From providing occasional outside general counsel, to negotiating project-specific contracts, or guiding end-to-end development of major projects, Jeremy can help.
