The Louisville office opened in February 2018 as the firm’s 48th office nationwide and the first office in Kentucky. Continuing Gordon & Rees’s strategic placement of offices throughout the United States, the Louisville office complements the firm’s existing offices in the south.
Led by office managing partner and seasoned construction law attorney, Angela M. Richie, the Louisville office offers unparalleled legal advice on issues impacting the construction industry. Ms. Richie was the first attorney in the Commonwealth of Kentucky to achieve Green Advantage® certification in Commercial and Residential construction and is a LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP). Ms. Richie combines her depth of knowledge on construction law and sustainable practices to advise clients on how to effectively maximize green design and construction.
The attorneys in the Louisville office offer extensive expertise on a variety of construction issues ranging from construction contracts, collection of unpaid amounts, OSHA violations, mechanic’s liens, workers compensation immunity disputes, and prevailing wage disputes. The Louisville team also frequently consults with steel fabricators and other members of the structural steel industry on allegations of defective fabrication and erection of structural steel, applications of Buy America(n) statutes and regulations as well as contracts between steel fabricators, general contractors and downstream detailers, structural engineers and erectors.
Our Louisville team has long term established connections in the local and business communities and throughout Kentucky. They specialize in construction issues yet they also advise on a range of legal issues and frequently collaborate with Gordon & Rees attorneys across the country to provide strategic counsel on legal issues impacting their clients.
