Tenacious and methodical, Jon Gauthier is an experienced attorney and litigator who represents business owners and executives, in-house counsel, and project managers regarding construction claims, collections, course-of-performance issues, contract requirements, and construction-related disputes. His clients include general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, sureties, and engineering firms.

The majority of Jon’s legal experience over thirty-five years has been focused on construction industry matters; he is highly knowledgeable about construction operations, industry practices, and clients’ business concerns. Jon has excellent relationships with many attorneys and other professionals involved in the construction industry. This experience enables him to resolve most claims — usually without lengthy litigation — either before court or shortly after court proceedings are started. Importantly, Jon always considers the cost and impact to business operations, opportunities, and reputation before advising clients how best to proceed.
