PilieroMazza—a business law firm serving the needs of government contractors and commercial businesses—is pleased to welcome Jessica duHoffmann, who joined the Firm as a Partner and Practice Group Chair of the newly formed Construction Group. Jessica counsels companies operating in various disciplines of the construction industry on matters relating to operational issues, legal compliance requirements, and business litigation. Her high level of experience, knowledge, and legal acumen in construction law helps clients advance their corporate interests and effectively resolve their complex disputes. 

“Integrating Jessica’s construction law practice into the fold of PilieroMazza’s strategic plan makes perfect sense as so many of our clients operate in the construction space,” said Managing Partner Tony Franco. “Her knowledge of construction law is an added benefit to our clients seeking legal guidance in this area. We’re excited to work with Jessica and welcome her into the PilieroMazza family.”

Companies in the construction arena play a vital role in building and strengthening our nation’s infrastructure, and I’m proud to be an advocate for their legal rights.”

Unpaid contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers benefit from Jessica’s ability to successfully broker substantial settlements on private and public construction projects throughout the country for claims related to change orders, equitable adjustments, and delays. When necessary, she defends clients against construction defect claims, mechanics’ liens, bond claims, and general commercial litigation.

Jessica advises clients on licensing and training issues relative to home improvement laws and regulations. Additionally, her practice extends to commercial matters, including contract disputes, real estate matters, and credit and collection issues. She also offers guidance on corporate governance disputes, including those arising within nonprofit organizations.

An experienced litigator at both the trial and appellate levels, Jessica represents businesses in various forms of alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including private mediation and commercial arbitration before the American Arbitration Association.

Jessica frequently conducts presentations on issues such as mechanics’ liens, payment bond claims, and construction law to educate clients on their legal compliance requirements.
