Peter Doely is a business litigator focused on resolving construction, insurance coverage, and other commercial disputes. He regularly represents clients in state courts, federal courts, mediations, and arbitrations.
Peter provides practical advice to help his clients navigate all phases of their construction projects, from contract negotiations to asserting or defending claims. He has represented a variety of participants in the construction industry, including owners, general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, design professionals, and sureties in matters such as construction and design defect claims, delay and extra work claims, performance and payment bond claims, mechanics liens, and bid protests. In addition, Peter advises clients on federal and state compliance issues.
Peter also regularly advises insurance policyholders regarding their rights and asserts those rights on their behalf. While Peter's understanding of construction provides him unique insight into insurance issues related to that industry, he also works with a variety of policyholders seeking insurance coverage, whether for their liabilities or for their own losses.
