Architects & Engineers

Conn Kavanaugh has a wealth of experience advising and representing architects and engineers in many aspects of their businesses.

We have represented numerous large and small architectural and engineering firms in a variety of litigation and business matters. We serve as the primary outside general counsel to multiple engineering companies. We provide advice to these companies on a broad spectrum of legal matters, ranging from business formation, employment disputes, landlord-tenant issues, and contract negotiation, to the prosecution and defense of claims seeking compensation for business losses or other damages. All of this experience allows us to speak the language of the industry, and to assist architectural or engineering professionals and firms with virtually any of the legal issues they typically face.
