Donald J. Hillmann

For more than 35 years, Couch White’s construction practice group has been at the forefront on issues involving the construction industry in the State of New York. Our depth of knowledge and experience have prepared us to assist our clients with the problems that the construction process presents in both the private and public sectors. We know the law. We know the regulatory process. We know the competitive bidding process. We know our way around the Department of Labor and the public contracting agencies – Office of General Services and the Department of Transportation and the public benefit corporations involved in construction such as the State University Construction Fund and the Dormitory Authority.

The lawyers in our construction practice group have experience in a very broad range of issues from contract formation through the resolution of disputes.

From our position as counsel for such leading construction industry groups such as Associated General Contractors of New York State, LLC and New York Construction Materials Association, Inc. and our affiliations with other industry groups, we have the pulse of the construction industry and we are current with industry trends, issues and best practices – all of which enables us to provide value to our construction industry clients.
