Daniel A. Dorfman

Daniel A. Dorfman is a capital partner and Co-Chair of the Firm’s Chambers-ranked Construction Law Group. Daniel has been named among the leading construction law attorneys in Illinois by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business. Daniel represents local Chicago-based and nationally prominent owners/developers and some of the largest and most well-known design and construction professionals in the country on their most important projects – both on the front end in drafting and negotiating complex agreements and on the back end litigating and trying to verdict (when necessary) all types of commercial construction disputes.

Daniel also serves as Acting General Counsel for construction industry clients including an international hotel brand, a luxury residential “lease-up” brokerage, a large century-old iron mill, developers and premier specialty contractors. In addition to being an accomplished construction lawyer, Daniel has a related Policyholder/Insurance Coverage practice representing insureds in securing millions of dollars of coverage, both within and outside of the construction industry, in insurance coverage disputes.

Daniel is a frequent presenter, author and academic lecturer on construction law topics. He currently serves on Construction Law360’s Editorial Advisory Board and is an active member of the Chicagoland Associated General Contractors (AGC), DRI’s Fidelity and Surety Committee, and the Sustainability Commission of the Village of Deerfield, Illinois.

Over the past decade Daniel has led and handled multifaceted construction law matters nationwide totaling over $1 billion in project value and including some of the most recognizable projects in the country. Daniel is known by clients and construction industry participants as the go-to for:

Transactions and Contracts: Daniel regularly drafts and negotiates design and construction agreements in the hospitality, commercial, industrial, and retail spaces, often developing tailor-made agreements to cover multiple projects to help reduce significant risks in the construction process. Daniel also represents clients in connection with construction loan financing matters.

Litigation: Daniel represents international hospitality brands, national owners of apartment communities, national general contractors, and some of the most well-respected design firms in the country in highly complex, multimillion-dollar construction disputes with claims, including design and construction defects, project delays, mechanics liens, and payment disputes.

Policyholder Insurance Coverage: Daniel represents insureds in securing millions of dollars of coverage on a wide range of policies, including commercial general liability, errors and omissions / professional liability, directors and officers, project specific and manuscript, first-party, and nonprofit liability.

Sustainable & Renewable Industries Practice: Daniel, a LEED® Green Associate, also represents clients who construct “green” buildings, as well as clients who build renewable projects, such as wind farms and solar energy systems.

Through his combined expertise in contracts, litigation, insurance coverage, and sustainability, Daniel has gained a reputation as the go-to expert among construction industry participants and professionals including owners, developers, general contractors, architects, engineers, specialty trades, and construction suppliers for all aspects of construction law, including:

Construction Litigation
As an accomplished trial lawyer, Daniel has tried to verdict many cases in state and federal courts nationwide.  But Daniel’s focus on reaching the best resolution for his clients also means attaining favorable outcomes without the time and expense of trial.  Daniel assists his clients with risk management strategies to help prevent disputes before they happen and advises on appropriate strategies and mechanisms to resolve disputes. Daniel’s construction litigation engagements include:

  • Represented and successfully defended developer in a building envelope construction defect case brought by condominium association involving a ground-up 40-unit new construction condominium.
  • Represented one of the largest owners and operators of quality apartment communities in the U.S. in obtaining a multimillion-dollar settlement in a construction defects case against contractors and subcontractors arising from tile and flooring claims involving a multifamily property in California. The favorable outcome allowed the client to save the project, keep the property in its portfolio and retain its value.
  • Represented one of the largest general contractors in the Midwest in obtaining a favorable settlement arising out of coverage denial related to the construction of an upscale shopping mall.
  • Represented a design professional in obtaining a favorable settlement in a dispute arising out of defect claims to a historic and architecturally significant property located in the heart of Chicago. Importantly, the outcome also maintained the architect-client’s reputation in the industry.
  • Represented client/owner in obtaining voluntary dismissal of plaintiff-contractor in a significant construction dispute involving office commercial property after filing client’s dispositive motion and before court ruled on motion.
  • Represented owner and successfully obtained a defense verdict in arbitration on behalf of owner in substantial mechanics lien claim on an office renovation project.
  • Represented a leading Southeastern Wisconsin specialty electrical contractor in prosecuting a multimillion-dollar mechanics lien claim against owner and successfully defended client against defect claims.
  • Represented a Chicago landmark hotel in obtaining a multimillion-dollar settlement on the eve of trial in a construction defects case against general contractor and design professional arising from renovation of guest rooms and related mechanical claims. The timely settlement permitted the client to complete the renovation, retaining the value of its investment.
  • Represented owner in successful 3-week jury trial against general contractor for failing to correct structural defects on apartment buildings.

Construction Transactions and Contracts
Daniel’s practice complements the Firm’s highly regarded Real Estate practice by adding his transactional experience across the gamut of construction agreements, including general contractor agreements, design agreements, engineering agreements, prime subcontractor agreements, master service agreements, FF&E agreements, project management agreements, and consulting agreements, on behalf of:

  • A policyholder in successfully obtaining reimbursement of legal fees against insurer who declined coverage and filed declaratory judgment of no coverage in underlying dispute involving construction of a new retail shopping mall in Chicago.
  • A general contractor in obtaining summary judgment dismissal against insurer in subrogation action involving alleged construction defects on core and shell of 10-story retail property.
