WHERE INNOVATION MEETS TRADITION

Jeff Davison chairs the firm’s Construction Practice Group. He has represented contractors, design professionals, construction lenders, suppliers, subcontractors and sureties on a wide variety of construction matters throughout the United States and internationally. His practice has involved construction litigation in state and federal courts, as well as resolving litigation disputes in arbitration and mediation proceedings. He has prepared and defended claims in numerous areas of construction law, including bid protests, delay, acceleration, disruption/inefficiency claims, design error claims, contract default claims, payment disputes, MBE/DBE challenges, insurance coverage claims, mechanics liens and bond claims. He has also served as a mediator for the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).

After recovering over $37 million in 2006 and over $21 million in 2007 for his clients[1], Davison was asked to speak at the San Francisco Construction SuperConference on a collaborative construction dispute resolution process which he assisted in developing. This unique ADR technique has been utilized to save both the contractor and the project owner millions of dollars and time in resolving complex construction claims.

In 2010, Davison represented a general contractor who successfully obtained a decision in excess of $10 million from a Disputes Resolution Board in Phoenix. [1]

Davison is dedicated to diligently working to identify the unique needs and objectives of his clients in order to develop cost-effective solutions to their problems and avoid time consuming and costly legal battles.

Land Development and Construction Issue Expert
Mr. Davison is extremely knowledgeable on a broad set of issues. More importantly, when touching on a subject that has not been completely mastered he knows where to go to get or bring the necessary knowledge on board. He anticipates possible sources of surprises well but handles the inevitable ones that arise calmly and professionally. No one will outwork Jeff in preparation or research. I have enjoyed Jeff’s expertise/guidance on a number of land development and construction contract related issues over the past 10+ years.
