Jeremy Baker

Schiff Hardin LLP

Jeremy S. Baker is a construction attorney who helps his clients to complete challenging projects by emphasizing dispute avoidance and early, cost-efficient resolution of claims. He represents property owners, developers, design professionals, contractors and lenders in all aspects of design and construction, from contract negotiation through dispute resolution.

He provides counsel and advocacy to avoid and resolve disputes involving:

  • Sustainable design and construction
  • Construction project payment and accounting
  • Delay, disruption, acceleration and labor productivity
  • Mechanics lien and mortgage foreclosures
  • Performance and payment bonds
  • Bankruptcy and collections
  • Design and construction defects
  • Digital Data / Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • Design professional intellectual property
  • Zoning and permitting
  • Insurance

Jeremy’s practice also involves project structuring across a variety of delivery methods, as well as contract review and negotiation on commercial, mixed use, educational, hospitality, multi-family residential, retail, workplace, utility and government projects.

Jeremy is an experienced litigator who has prosecuted and defended lawsuits in well over 30 state and federal court venues, as well as in American Arbitration Association proceedings.

However, he prefers to resolve disputes using cost-efficient alternative dispute resolution — including non-binding mediation — without the need for expensive arbitration or litigation. He is an early adopter and proponent of the Guided Choice Dispute Resolution System, a more effective alternative to traditional commercial mediation and arbitration.

Jeremy believes clients are best served through lasting relationships. His clients trust him to protect their business interests by anticipating and preventing problems. When unforeseen disputes arise, he leverages his deep knowledge of the design and construction industries, and a diverse range of legal skills, to dispatch the problems swiftly and cost-effectively.
