Arlan Lewis is a partner in the firm's Construction & Procurement and Government Contracts Practice Groups. An architect by education, Arlan's strong interest in the construction industry is evident in his representation of owners, contractors, subcontractors, developers, suppliers, and to a limited extent, design professionals, on a variety of issues arising out of complex commercial construction projects in the private and public sectors.
Arlan regularly represents construction industry clients in all aspects of litigation in state and federal courts in several jurisdictions around the country, and on occasion, internationally. In the litigation context, Arlan's involvement often begins when a dispute has arisen, or is anticipated, and continues through discovery, alternative dispute resolution procedures (including mediation and arbitration), settlement negotiations and, if unsuccessful, trial. Arlan has also gained substantial experience in advising clients concerning licensing and compliance issues, the negotiation, drafting and review of contract documents, and a variety of issues which arise during the performance of a project.
