Christensen & Prezeau, PLLP, is a leader in the area of construction law.

The firm represents contractors, owners, developers, architects, engineers, subcontractors, and suppliers, providing both construction-related advice and litigation services. Our firm has extensive experience in the preparation and review of construction contracts and construction liens, administrative and licensing issues, and negotiation and litigation of disputes involving defective construction, contract disputes, and delay and collection issues.

We also serve as panel counsel for several national insurance companies, providing representation to contractors and design professionals in construction-related litigation.

Christensen & Prezeau, PLLP, evolved from the long-standing and well-respected law firm of Hughes, Kellner, Sullivan, and Alke. After HKSA dissolved in 2014, Amy Christensen, Cherche Prezeau, and John Sullivan formed Christensen & Prezeau, PLLP, and were accompanied by two of their associates. Christensen & Prezeau, PLLP, has seamlessly continued the tradition created decades ago of providing award-winning legal counsel and representation to businesses, governmental agencies, health care organizations, nonprofit corporations, insurance companies, and individuals throughout Montana.

Our legal advice and litigation strategies are based on a combination of acumen, practicality, and years of experience. Our attorneys are experienced counselors and litigators in a variety of legal topics and are capable of resolving issues and disputes in court, administrative proceedings, and alternate dispute resolution. In every case, we strive to achieve one simple goal: getting the right result for our clients.
