General contractors and sub-contractors face issues unique to the construction industry like labor supply, scheduling considerations and lien perfection. But they also face the same critical issues as other business owners – managing growth, navigating market fluctuations, overcoming financial obstacles and many more. When disputes arise that threaten the bottom line with delays or increased costs, it’s my job to narrow the issues down to find fast, effective solutions that provide the most value and allow my clients to focus on their businesses instead of litigation.
Russell Jumper is the go-to lawyer for general contractors, sub-contractors and owners throughout Texas that need creative solutions for the day-to-day and big-picture problems that arise during sophisticated commercial construction projects. While his practice is primarily focused on finding efficient ways to resolve payment, lien, delay and defect disputes both in and out of the courtroom, Russell also develops dispute avoidance strategies and crafts master service and sub-contract agreements that help clients address issues proactively in an effort to prevent litigation altogether.
When Russell’s clients face challenges that go beyond everyday construction law – employee harassment or discrimination claims, corporate governance, succession planning or IRS audits – they quickly discover there’s no need to search elsewhere to find the ideal solution. Russell calls on the firm’s extensive resources to ensure each client’s broader business needs are served from top to bottom. Whether it involves simply connecting a client with the right lawyer within the firm or assembling a focused team of banking, insurance or other professionals capable of handling every aspect of a deal or dispute, Russell helps each client reach the best possible outcome no matter what issue arises.
Russell has experience protecting his clients at trial and in arbitration and enjoys helping them prevail when the stakes are high. But if their interests are better served outside the courtroom, Russell finds the path of least resistance to a cost-effective alternative solution. When emotions run high and opposing parties muddy the waters with aggressive tactics, Russell keeps clients calm and focused on making the best decision that not only resolves the dispute at hand, but also accounts for the financial and human impact far down the road. At the end of the day, Russell’s goal is for clients to feel that their business is better off as a result of the strategy they developed and pursued together.
