Client Work

As a general commercial litigator, David has a wide array of experience that includes complex commercial litigation ranging from partnership, licensing, and real estate disputes. At times his practice focused on property management and real estate where he represented property owners and developers. Typical projects included business disputes and defense of significant construction claims involving project cost overruns, defective and nonconforming work, delay claims due to deviations in project schedule, and unforeseen field conditions. A significant component of David’s real estate work has been in the area of construction-related activities involving hotel renovation, including:

  • A building-wide guest room renovation project
  • A comprehensive lobby renovation
  • A multifaceted utility upgrade in which the hotel’s original utility system was replaced with a custom-designed transformer vault so that the property could acquire bulk utility services

David also has built an active practice in the health law arena representing home health agencies, assisted living facilities, and other providers of health services, including physicians, practice groups, and hospitals. He advises providers on a myriad of activities, focusing on government audits and reimbursement disputes that included the interplay between federal and state programs. He also has extensive experience addressing competitive disputes among providers, as well as insurance coverage, employment disputes, restrictive covenants, disciplinary and licensing matters, and administrative proceedings to obtain governmental approvals for facility development.

David has represented clients in insurance coverage claims, including property, environmental and directors, officers and fidelity policies.

He also has performed client counseling and contract drafting designed for litigation avoidance. Other projects have included negotiation and preparation of all types of operating agreements, advising clients about local regulatory and licensing.
