I take great pride in my depth of knowledge of construction law. When my clients are involved in a project dispute, I understand that it is a distraction that can keep them from focusing on their business. That is why I look for ways to help clients take advantage of opportunities to solve the overarching problem as quickly as possible and avoid picking up the pieces later in litigation.
As a lawyer and former civil engineer, Tim Fandrey has a strong understanding of the legal, technical and business challenges that clients face in the construction industry. His practice is primarily focused on helping general contractors, subcontractors, property owners and developers resolve the wide variety of claims and litigation that can arise in commercial and residential construction projects, including payment disputes, lien and bond claims, delay in performance claims, productivity claims, construction and design defects plus many more.
In addition to his litigation practice, Tim provides real-time advice through every phase of construction projects to help clients resolve developing issues proactively before they become expensive problems in the courtroom. He also advises clients on a broad range of construction transactions and negotiates associated deal documents, including owner agreements, subcontractor agreements and design agreements.
Before starting law school, Tim worked as a civil engineer for over four years, gaining unique practical experience in both the public and private sectors. After designing dozens of bridges and roadways for the Missouri Department of Transportation, Tim worked as a private engineering and environmental consultant and developed hands-on project management skills while overseeing numerous bridge, roadway and other design projects.
