Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Tim Gibbons, shareholder and chair of the construction group at Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C., has been selected as a Fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America (CLSA). Before joining the construction, litigation and business groups at Chambliss, Gibbons practiced as a licensed architect in Atlanta.

Gibbons has more than 20 years of experience in construction, arbitration and mediation.

He represents many clients in construction disputes on matters such as differing site conditions, lost efficiency, change orders, defective design, payment claims, structure collapses and job site fatalities. Gibbons has gained substantial experience from working on multi-million and billion dollar projects, negotiating and drafting contracts for automobile assembly plants, chemical processing facilities and sports stadiums.

 

Gibbons was named Chattanooga Construction Lawyer of the Year for 2017 by Best Lawyers in America©. He has been recognized for construction litigation by Mid-South Super Lawyers and was named a 2015 BTI Client Service All-Star in Construction by the BTI Consulting Group. He is a member of the construction panel for the American Arbitration Association and also serves on the Associated General Contractors Committee on Construction Contracts. He often lectures on construction law topics, including payment remedies, alternative dispute resolution and construction contract provisions.

 

The CLSA is an invitation-only international honorary association composed of preeminent lawyers specializing in construction law and related fields. Fellowship is limited and selective, with lawyers being invited into fellowship upon a proven record of excellence and accomplishment in construction law at both the trial and appellate levels.

 

Lawyers may be nominated or selected in any discipline in the construction law arena, including contract specialization, negotiations, litigation, arbitration, appellate and/or surety law, but nominees must also have superior ethical reputations. The CLSA seeks a high level of diversity in its selection process. Fellows are generally at the partner or shareholder level, or are independent practitioners with recognized advanced status among their peers. The CLSA is dedicated to promoting superior advocacy and ethical standards in construction law and fostering a scholarly and advanced exchange of ideas in all practices related to the specialty.
