Richard Odgers Award Recognizes Pillsbury for Its Pro Bono Efforts
Laura is a partner in Pillsbury’s Construction Counseling & Dispute Resolution practice.
Laura has significant experience in complex litigation and arbitration, focusing on the areas of construction, engineering, and energy-related disputes. She advises contractors and subcontractors, utilities, developers, and real estate owners on construction-related issues such as construction defects, claims of extra work, delay, disruption, acceleration, suspension and termination of contracts. As a former practicing architect, Laura has a solid grasp of a construction project’s technical detail, allowing her to speak the language of her clients and relay that information in everyday terms to judges and juries.
At the intersection of construction and energy, most recently, Laura’s practice has principally been focused on large construction-related disputes in the energy sector, including representing a regulated utility in a dispute over termination of a new nuclear power plant, a manufacturer of a replacement steam generator, and a contractor decommissioning a nuclear power plant.
