Since the beginning, the representation of design professionals has been a primary focus of our practice. Starting with the defense of professional malpractice claims by Mike Murtaugh well before the Firm was founded, the practice grew to encompass employment, intellectual property and professional service contract matters in the 1980s, and ownership transition and acquisition transactions in the 1990s. Today a number of Firm members — including especially Mike Murtaugh, Larry Treglia, Madelyn Enright and Michelle Generaux — have extensive experience with the interface between the legal and design professions, as well as a solid understanding of both the design and construction process and the challenges of succeeding in the A/E business.
