At HDBD, we grew our A/E Construction practice with the addition of Charlie Lyman and Marshall Rosenberg, who have a combined 60 years’ experience in the field.

Marshall Rosenberg has been practicing A/E Construction law for over 20 years. His practice areas include premises liability, construction defect disputes, and commercial real estate litigation. Marshall also handles professional liability actions involving architects, engineers, surveyors, and real estate professionals. In addition, he provides consulting services and contract review for a variety of design professionals, contractors, builders, and developers. Visit his bio page on hdbdlaw.com to learn more about his involvement in the construction industry community.

Charlie Lyman’s clients repeatedly turn to him for the wealth of industry experience he’s gained over his 35 years practicing A/E/C law. His practice focuses on representation of individuals and companies, large and small, in construction-related litigation, professional-malpractice claims, premises-liability cases, personal-injury matters, plant-explosion cases, and catastrophic industrial accident cases. Mr. Lyman is the past president of the Houston, Texas ABOTA Chapter.

Firm Information

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling both straightforward and complex construction litigation and arbitration. In these conflicts, we have represented owners, contractors, architects, engineers and lenders in residential and commercial projects. We have handled a wide range of cases, from straight breach of contract matters to catastrophic failures involving tremendous economic losses as well as injuries and death. Our breadth of experience also includes federal project construction disputes. We deal with forensic accountants to develop damage models, and we work with various other experts to assess causation and professional responsibility.
Our lawyers bring deep technical experience to the construction arena, along with vast trial experience. This experience is an asset in other forums as well. In the area of arbitrations, our extensive experience is especially crucial to our clients given the fact most construction contracts now contain enforceable arbitration clauses. In addition to arbitrations, we are highly experienced in mediations and dispute resolution boards. At HDBD, we know your industry, we speak your language, and most importantly, we’re here to help.
