Bill is a real estate and construction lawyer who provides counseling and advice in all phases of a project. He also regularly represents large and small businesses in general commercial litigation disputes.

Bill works closely with his clients to understand their financial, business, and litigation goals and then develops a strategy to obtain those goals as efficiently and effectively as possible. His whole career has focused on real estate, construction, and business litigation. With that background, he gained first-hand experience seeing how deals can fall apart and how they can be saved. This experience makes him a strong counselor and advocate when representing a client who is putting a deal together, negotiating a settlement, or when going to litigation.

Bill spends most of his time handling:
 

  • Construction defect, delay, and payment claims
  • Landlord-tenant disputes including covenant enforcement, eviction proceedings, and exclusivity rights
  • Loan and security agreement disputes
  • Real estate litigation including disputes arising out of title, boundary, access and easement rights
  • Business disputes involving business break-ups, contract, fiduciary and fraud claims
  • First-chaired a five-day jury trial representing a plaintiff asserting claims of fraud, misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of contract related to a complex real estate transaction. Obtained a judgment in excess of $2 million.
  • First-chaired a four-day jury trial representing a defendant in a mechanic's lien trust fund action. Obtained a defense verdict.
  • Obtained a successful resolution when a plaintiff was awarded a judgment of approximately one-fourth her pretrial demand following second-chairing a five-day jury trial representing a defendant in an admitted liability personal injury matter.
  • Successfully prosecuted claims by national retail bakery restaurant against its landlord for breach of an exclusivity covenant in its lease. 
  • Successfully represented mountain resort owner in claim against architect and engineer of parking garage that had collapsed during construction. Recovered all claimed damages through settlement.
  • Defended national retail clothing store in claim brought by its former landlord for breach of the lease. Settled at a fraction of the landlord's initial demand.
  • Defended national transportation management company in claim brought by former executive for claimed breach of a bonus agreement.
