Biography

After almost 50 years running a litigation practice in public and private sectors with a focus in construction, environmental and commercial disputes, Kevin now focuses primarily on mediation and arbitration in these areas.  As a fair and considerate moderator, he has brought to working resolution dozens of cases. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources recently appointed Kevin as Umpire under Sec. 292.35 Wis. Stats. to handle a multi-million dollar municipal cost recovery action. The role of Umpire involves mediation, negotiation, analytical, and reporting skills for the parties and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. He has worked with individuals, public and private companies, governments, insurance companies, and professions including architecture and engineering. Disputes have involved construction both above and below ground, residential and commercial buildings, business contracts, indemnity and insurance, environmental liability, site remediation, and damages. Kevin’s wide-ranging expertise includes working for companies ranging from family owned to Fortune 500 as well as with federal, state, and local governments. His experience makes him uniquely qualified to resolve disputes.
