Profile

Luke Martin helps his construction industry clients identify, plan for, and mitigate the risks faced on their construction projects. Luke understands thatevery construction project is unique, that each project is situated on its own site, with its own design, built under varying economic conditions and, mostimportantly, with its own set of stakeholders. He understands the considerable risks associated with each project, whether it be risks of delay, ofdiffering site conditions, of manpower shortages, or the simple risks of personality conflicts among the project participants.

Luke helps his clients navigate these risks from before the contract is signed all the way through contract closeout and dispute resolution. He advisesclients regarding contract negotiation, including the creation and revision of contract (and subcontract) documents before contract execution.
