Focus

Sean practices in the areas of construction, real property, and business law and litigation. Over the course of his career, Sean has focused the bulk of his practice on representing private and public parties in all aspects and stages of construction, from project planning to post-completion claim disputes. He has extensive experience litigating and trying cases in jury and non-jury settings, including defending a municipality against claims of fraud and breach of contract by a developer which resulted in a complete defense verdict in favor of the municipality. In addition to his litigation experience, Sean has drafted and negotiated multi-million dollar construction contracts in a variety of contexts, including construction manager at risk, construction manager as an agent, cost-plus, and stipulated sum. Outside of his practical experience, Sean routinely authors construction law publications and presents continuing education programs to attorneys and construction industry personnel on construction law topics.
