Tony Barron represents clients in the construction and real estate development industry, primarily owners and contractors, in contract negotiations, project counseling and dispute resolution. He serves as vice-chair of the firm’s Litigation Department.
I focus my practice on all facets of the construction and real estate development industry, both domestically and internationally, in addition to other complex commercial litigation matters.
I litigate complex commercial litigation matters in a variety of industries including technology, banking and insurance. As vice chair of our Litigation Department, I help lead the firm’s more than 300 litigators.
While the construction industry is strong in some geographies, and weaker in others, industry players need to avoid returning to the era of endless claims and litigation. Proactively avoiding risk, and efficiently and effectively resolving disputes, is more important than ever.
