Clif Shapiro of the Chicago office of Barnes & Thornburg LLP was quoted in the August 11 Lawyers USA article, "Construction litigation booming as economy goes bust." According to the article, construction litigation has become a booming area of the law as the economy continues its downward spiral. Although the types of claims are not necessarily new, there is a lot more work for lawyers representing developers, builders and buyers.
Clif is a partner and chair of the firm's Construction Law Practice Group. He concentrates his practice in construction law and litigation, insurance coverage litigation on behalf of policyholders and other complex commercial litigation.
