Jeremy Brummond practices in the Litigation Department. Although his focus is on engineering and construction, he represents clients in a variety of commercial litigation matters. Clients include property owners, engineers, general contractors, and specialty contractors. Jeremy counsels clients in contract negotiation and drafting, and he frequently represents such clients in construction-related litigation including cases involving claimed construction defects, delay and lost productivity, and mechanic’s lien and payment bond claims.

Jeremy has been appointed to be Chair of Division 9, Subcontractors and Suppliers, of the American Bar Association’s Forum on the Construction Industry, and he is a member of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis’s Construction Law Committee. Jeremy was selected for inclusion in Missouri & Kansas Rising Stars® 2010-2014 and in Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers® every year since 2015.

The Firm represents a wide variety of design and construction professionals, including engineers, architects, owners, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors, lenders, and sureties, in a variety of matters such as:

  • Regulatory compliance and licensing issues at the local, state, and federal levels
  • Contract drafting and negotiation, including review and negotiation of unique contracts and all industry standard forms (e.g., AIA and ConsensusDOCS)
  • Claim counseling and documentation of claims, including work with scheduling and impact experts
  • Filing and prosecution of mechanic’s lien and payment bond claims
  • Construction dispute resolution, including resolution of payment, defect, delay and impact claims in international and domestic arbitrations and in state and federal courts, in and outside of Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois
