He is a partner in our Trial and Global Disputes Practice Group, and has appeared in state and federal courts across the country and in arbitrations around the world.
Craig worked as a professional engineer for more than seven years in the chemical manufacturing industry, where he was responsible for the design and construction of capital projects. With that energy industry background, Craig has focused most of his legal career on resolving engineering and construction disputes arising from energy-related infrastructure projects, including disputes involving refineries; gas plants; chemical plants; fossil-fuel, nuclear, solar and hydroelectric power plants; gas pipelines and compressor stations; and onshore and offshore oil and gas production facilities.
He has also litigated construction matters involving sports stadiums, hospitals, and other facilities outside the energy industry. Craig has tried and arbitrated a variety of cases involving alleged engineering or construction defects that led to catastrophic industrial fires and explosions. He has also tried and arbitrated numerous cases involving more traditional cost overrun, delay, disruption, scope change and similar construction-related claims.
