Bruce has been involved in the construction industry his entire professional career.  Initially, he graduated with an undergraduate degree in Building Construction and worked for an engineering firm gaining experience with project scheduling, claim evaluation, and cost control.  Later, he graduated from law school and became a founding member of the law firm Kirwin Norris, PA, dedicated to the practice of construction law.  In that regard, he has personally prepared or litigated multi-million dollar construction contracts and claims in connection with various types of projects including utility plants, stadia, hospitals, commercial and educational buildings, military facilities, bridges, and roadways.  Bruce serves as both legal and business advisor to senior executives and managers with some of the largest ranked contractors in the United States.  He has even served in the role of special in-house counsel to clients. 

From this collective experience in the construction industry, he understands the significance of efficiently resolving complex disputes to avoid protracted and expensive litigation.  Since 2010, Bruce has routinely served as mediator and third-party neutral.  In that role, he has successfully guided the negotiated resolution of hundreds of complex commercial disputes, the majority of which involved construction and real-estate related matters.  To schedule Bruce for mediation, you can either contact his scheduling coordinator Agata Traughber or click on the following link to view his on-line calendar.
