Brian Corgan is head of the firm’s Construction & Infrastructure Projects team and concentrates his practice in construction contracts, litigation, and alternative disputes resolution. Mr. Corgan has handled construction disputes involving nuclear and coal-fired power plants, cement plants, international airport runway construction, prisons and correctional facilities, cogeneration (power, cement and lime) plants, off-shore oil production, storage and offloading facilities, wastewater treatment plants, environmental remediation and closure projects, mining facilities, meat processing facilities, steel mills, oil refineries, hospitals, convention centers, and a variety of other commercial and industrial construction projects.

Since 1979, Mr. Corgan’s practice has focused on the representation of owners, construction managers and contractors on large industrial and commercial projects. His clients range from owners to engineering and materials testing firms, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, sureties, and design professionals. He has been involved in arbitrations, mediations, and state and federal court trials, and international adjudications.

The firm is nationally recognized for our experience in construction and public contracts law. Our attorneys are leaders in dealing with complex construction matters throughout the United States and overseas. Through our exclusive focus on construction-related issues, the group has a vast amount of experience in virtually every type of construction project, including wastewater treatment plants, airports, tunnels, prisons, hospitals, office buildings, sports arenas, schools, hotels and resorts, power plants, and industrial facilities.

Our representation spans all segments of the construction industry from owners, public and private, to general contractors, real estate developers, design and engineering firms, contractors and sureties. We have counseled multinational and Fortune 500 corporations and trade associations representing billion dollar industries, as well as smaller local and regional clients. Our attorneys routinely appear in courts throughout the United States.

We also know how to prevent and resolve disputes. Dispute prevention and early resolution of unavoidable conflicts are cornerstones of our practice. We have years of experience working directly with key project personnel to avoid disputes and effectively and efficiently resolve on a “real-time” basis those disputes which cannot be avoided. We regularly represent clients in mediations and arbitrations, and our lawyers are well experienced in other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Many of our construction lawyers are certified to act as arbitrators and mediators in various state and federal forums, as well as before the American Arbitration Association.

We provide a full range of services to our clients including planning, permitting, financing, environmental compliance, negotiating, contract review and drafting, dispute avoidance and resolution, and litigation. We also educate our clients on the benefits of involving our attorneys in the early stages of a project in order to minimize the risk and exposure to claims and disputes, thereby helping to complete the project within time and budgetary contractions.

Kilpatrick Townsend attorneys are fully engaged in the success of the firm’s clients. We deliver results-oriented counsel for corporations at all stages of the growth cycle, from the challenging demands of financial transactions and securities to the disciplines of intellectual property management. A close collaboration between the firm’s practice areas ensures that we are well-positioned to serve all of our clients’ needs.

A fervent focus on client service is the foundation of our success. From hiring multinational, cross-industry, and cross-practice area talent to instilling a commitment to client service in our firm’s philosophy and goals, we are able to continue our success as a multinational business law firm.

We serve clients around the world from our 17 offices in California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Washington, Sweden, Japan and Shanghai. We value our client relationships and are committed to learning and furthering the business, as well as legal goals, of each company we work with.

We strive at every level to develop beneficial relationships built on trust and mutual respect. We partner with the senior executives and internal counsel of our corporate clients, integrating and sharing tasks as appropriate. We take pride in the fact that clients who hire us once, typically hire us again. Our success is measured by the results we achieve on behalf of our clients, and we commit ourselves, without reservation, to the overriding objective of client satisfaction.
