DLA Piper LLP (US) is frequently engaged by owners and developers in complex transactional and contentious construction matters. The team is spread across a number of the firm’s multiple US offices, with practice co-chairs Robert Crewdson and Anthony Meagher in Atlanta and Baltimore respectively. Crewdson was recently enlisted by new client Brandywine Realty Trust to defend against delay claims brought by the construction manager and structural engineer. The claims concern a forty-story mixed-use development project in Philadelphia, and culminated in a huge success for the client. Meagher was the key name in successfully acting for Buzzi Unicem in complex arbitration proceedings centering on the client’s $300m cement plant. The firm also has a strong track record in stadium projects, and has recently worked alongside the Milan office on the new AS Roma stadium, with costs totaling over $2bn. Atlanta partner Brian Fielden led on this matter, supported by a team including Virginia partner Mark Whitaker and New York partner Richard Rubano. Similarly, Fielden has been assisting Nashville Holdings with negotiating design and construction agreements for the construction of a $250m stadium in Nashville, currently under construction.
