Mr. Watson's practice focuses on the litigation and resolution of complex professional liability, commercial, construction, intellectual property, products liability and environmental matters. He has successfully represented domestic and international contractors, design professionals and project owners before various federal, state and international courts and arbitration panels. Mr. Watson's expertise includes contract review, drafting and risk management for clients bidding or performing work on a variety of projects ranging from heavy industry, transit and pharmaceutical construction projects to commercial, educational and residential construction projects.
