Disputes involving construction defects are often complicated, so it’s critical to hire a neutral who is rooted in this niche area of law. Dick understands what it’s like to be on both sides of the table, as an advocate lawyer as well as the mediator or arbitrator, and applies this valuable perspective as a neutral in a construction matter.
Advocate lawyers representing owners, general contractors, contractors, subcontractors, surety companies, designers, engineers, and architects rely on Dick and his reputable background in construction law for knowledgeable neutral services. He has extensive experience amicably resolving construction and design related disputes, and firmly believes mediation is a superior way to solve most disputes, particularly in a construction setting.
Dick, a certified mediator/arbitrator, resolves disputes involving design defects, scheduling, delay and disruption, and compression and acceleration issues on a wide variety of construction projects, including highway, commercial, public buildings, detention centers and residential construction, as well as differing site conditions with catastrophic losses such as building collapses and related issues.
During his distinguished career as an attorney, Dick was named Construction Lawyer of the Year in Kansas City, Missouri by The Best Lawyers in America® in 2013; was a charter fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America; and successfully represented construction contractors, insurance and surety bond companies, and other corporate clients in multimillion-dollar cases across North America and internationally.
