Construction

As a first year lawyer, Roy Atwood had the opportunity to be a member of a trial team that conducted a four month trial over issues stemming from the construction of the South Texas Nuclear Power Plant – a $5.5 billion project. From that point on, construction litigation has always been an area of special interest to him and he has had the privilege of working on numerous construction-related litigation matters over the years. Of course, the goal of any construction project is not to spend years in court, but to successfully complete the project. Atwood Gameros can assist with contract drafting and review and with dispute assessment to help clients either avoid disputes or find the most cost-effective resolution of those that arise. Should successful resolution require arbitration or trial, Atwood Gameros is prepared there as well.
