Mr. Hall’s practice has included the litigation, arbitration, and mediation of numerous large construction and design disputes throughout the United States.
Mr. Hall also regularly works directly with clients at their project sites to help identify and resolve emerging problems quickly, to ensure contract compliance, to minimize project impacts, and to avoid the potential of future litigation. In addition, Mr. Hall provides training to construction clients in risk management, contract compliance, and dispute avoidance and resolution.
Prior to starting the firm, Mr. Hall practiced with the law firms of Peckar & Abramson and Griffin, Cochrane & Marshall (which merged with Sutherland in 2006).

As both an experienced litigator and as the former internal counsel to one of North America’s largest construction firms, Mr. Hall’s pragmatic approach to dispute resolution and problem solving is focused on identifying and satisfying the bottom line needs of construction clients and achieving the early resolution of disputed matters in the most efficient and cost-effective manner available.
