He advises contractors, owners/developers, architects, and engineers in all construction phases from pre-bid to project closeout, including final claims. He has 14 years of experience in-house, representing owners directly, which gives him first-hand knowledge to develop strategies to help clients protect their profits, minimize delays and expenses, enforce their contract rights, and resolve disputes. Casey is also uniquely positioned to help contractors and subcontractors protect their contract rights and assert those rights when necessary.
Casey has extensive experience drafting and negotiating engineered equipment purchase agreements and contracts for both owners and contractors, implementing processes and procedures to reduce risk, and assessing conditions to avoid and reduce claims.
He can skillfully mediate construction delay claims and contract disputes, including claims of inefficiency, delays, contract default and termination, and prosecuting and defending claims for extra work. Casey also has a deep understanding of insurance coverage, claims, and policy interpretations related to construction, engineering, and property insurances applicable to large scale construction projects.
In 2001 Casey received his Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He received his JD with honors from Washburn University Law School in 2005 and is a member of the Nebraska State Bar Association.
