Attorney Awards


Randy Finch is relied on by business owners, C-suite executives, and in-house counsel for his unique ability to see the big picture, and to get the job done efficiently and with predicted results. His expertise includes dispute resolution from early positioning and negotiation, to mediation, arbitration, trial, and appeal, as well as business planning and compliance. He is known for unabashedly telling clients what he would do in their situation, rather than simply offering the pros and cons of options from which the client must choose.

The construction industry has been Randy’s focus for over twenty years, and clients including general engineering and building contractors, specialty trade contractors, project owners, suppliers, and sureties continue to anchor Randy’s legal practice. However, his considerable success and experience in the highly regulated construction industry inevitably led to his representation of business owners in similarly regulated agriculture, automotive, clothing, and food and beverage industries.
