About me

Calegari Law Corporation (“CLC”) provides comprehensive practical advice to Clients in construction, real estate, business and litigation. CLC President and Attorney Kenneth Calegari offer CLC 23 years of experience including 30+ major construction project; $400M in real estate development; and over 300 real estate transactions.

Since formation of CLC in 2008, Clients have benefited from practical and knowlegable experience.  Attorney and President Calegari believes law firms can only effectively represent its Client base with hands-on experience in construction, business and real estate. “The continued failure of traditional firms is lack of practical experience in the underlying areas to be represented.

He has been a guest instructor to ICSC students about mixed use real estate development and San Diego State students on the subject of Construction Management.
