David is an experienced construction attorney who finds practical and cost-effective solutions for his clients, whether a matter involves contracting for a multimillion-dollar development or litigating a claim against a property.
Representing developers, designers, contractors and subcontractors, privately held and family-owned companies, David guides clients throughout the design, contracting, and construction processes. He not only provides strategic advice on ways to minimize cost and risk before contracts are signed, but also finds real-world solutions to complex contracting issues as they arise. David drafts and negotiates sophisticated design, design-build, and construction agreements throughout the United States for projects involving manufacturing facilities, restaurants, multifamily developments, apartment and office towers, medical facilities, warehouses, erosion control, and more.
When disputes arise, clients turn to David to resolve their construction, mechanics lien, surety, and contract conflicts before litigation becomes necessary. When clients find themselves in litigation, David calls on his extensive experience prosecuting and defending construction and contract actions throughout the United States to defend or prosecute their claims, successfully litigating matters in state and federal courts as well as in arbitration and mediation proceedings. David’s clients range from billion-dollar construction companies to local restaurateurs, and his representative case history includes historic building preservation claims, public roadway disputes, mechanics liens, surety claims, and construction contract conflicts on private and public builds.
Critically, David understands firsthand what the courts expect from his clients. Prior to joining Much, David spent two years as a professional law clerk for the Honorable Robert Quinn (Ret.) of the Chancery Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, where he concentrated on mechanics liens, commercial mortgage foreclosure, construction law, and commercial disputes.
