Represented a Florida construction company in claims against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regarding The Seven Oaks Dam in Southern California. The Seven Oaks Dam was, at the time, the largest civil works project under construction by the Corps and is the largest earthen dam ever built in North America. The client encountered differing site conditions and defective specifications during construction of the dam, and filed to recoup the extra costs it incurred. After we successfully tried several claims before the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, the Corps agreed to mediate the client's largest claim which stemmed from the placement of 15 million cubic yards of material on the dam. The mediation was successful and the Corps ultimately agreed to resolve all of the outstanding claims on the dam, with a total recovery for the client in excess of $40 million.
