Practice Areas

Hughes’s ‘birth to earth’ construction practice includes negotiating design, construction, and EPC agreements before construction begins, counseling project participants as construction proceeds, and resolving disputes when construction is complete.


Hughes provides services for energy, infrastructure, healthcare, hospitality, multifamily, and multi-use projects throughout the U.S and in Mexico, the Caribbean, South America, and Asia. In the past 12 years alone, he has negotiated contracts for over $15 billion in construction work and litigated or arbitrated over $2 billion in claims.
