Kevin S. Hendrick
Kevin S. Hendrick specializes in construction law and commercial litigation and heads the firm’s Construction group. He has counseled construction clients in the drafting and negotiation of construction contracts, and the bid process.
In representing owners, developers and contractors, he has reviewed proposed contract and subcontract agreements, and he has drafted construction contracts for use in Michigan. Much of Kevin’s experience in construction law arises out of his representation of contractors, owners, sureties and others in attempting to resolve disputes through litigation, arbitration or other dispute resolution mechanisms. The claims handled by Kevin in arbitration, mediation and civil litigation, have run the gamut of construction issues, from simple claims by unpaid claimants to complex claims for damages for delay; defects in performance; breach of warranty or poor workmanship; claims concerning the quality and performance of the work; and claims concerning the suitability of plans and specifications to achieve the desired result. Kevin has extensive experience and expertise in all manner of commercial litigation and business and insurance claims and disputes.
Kevin serves as an arbitrator on the Commercial/Construction Arbitration Panel of the American Arbitration Association, and also as an AAA mediator in construction and commercial disputes.
