I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.
~ Abraham H. Maslow, The Psychology of Science (1966)
Every problem a client brings to us presents unique challenges and opportunities; as a result, no single solution is effective for all problems. We take the unique challenges and seek out those opportunities, looking for creative solutions to achieve efficient and effective results. Often, the best solution to a particular problem is not the obvious approach. Sometimes, the solution to a client’s problem may depend upon a party that doesn’t even appear to be involved or require the application of a novel idea. We don’t see everything as a nail, because we have far more than a hammer. Please take a moment to review these case studies to see examples of how we creatively solve our clients’ problems.
Our client was the incumbent contractor performing armed security guard services at various locations for the Bonneville Power Administration (“BPA”). When that contract neared the end of its term, BPA issued a new solicitation for the work.
Our client was the electrical subcontractor on the $178 million Bassett Army Hospital on Fort Wainwright, Alaska. Our client incurred millions of dollars of additional, increased costs caused by a variety or circumstances—including defective specifications and delay and disruption.
Our client, a general contractor on a large federal project in Texas, faced a multi-million dollar claim brought by a subcontractor under the Miller Act. The subcontractor alleged various impacts and delays for which it blamed our client.
Our client was a lender seeking repayment of a multi-million dollar commercial loan to a failed developer. After filing a lawsuit against the guarantor of the loan, we prevailed via summary judgment against the guarantor and his community property.
