Richard J. Roy, P.E., J.D.

I am a licensed attorney with a degree from Tulane Law School earned in 1981. I specialize in the area of construction dispute resolution. As a member of the American Arbitration Association I have arbitrated and mediated hundreds of disputes, resolving hundreds of millions of dollars in claims. I have chaired a Disputes Review Board panel. I have chaired and served on dozens of moderated settlement conferences. I have been an Expert Witness in over one hundred construction litigation cases. I have testified on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. My clients have included both Public and Private Owners, Sureties, Designers, Management Firms, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Fabricators and Suppliers. The disputes have ranged in value from several hundred thousand to billions of dollars.

I am a certified mediator, arbitrator, project neutral, third party facilitator and sometimes serve as an advisor to parties who are involved in the resolution of construction disputes through negotiation, but whose process has become stagnant due to the unrealistic expectations of one or more of the parties. In such cases, I can bring a fresh and unbiased approach to the situation resulting in a more productive and realistic continuation of the resolution process. This kind of intervention has broken stalemates in the past which have resulted in acceptable settlements.

I am a specialist in resolving construction claims and disputes. I am an Expert Witness, Mediator, Arbitrator and Forensic Engineering Consultant. I am a Licensed Professional Engineer with a degree from Tulane University earned in 1966. I have 45 years experience in the public and private sectors of the construction industry. As an Engineer in construction management, I have worked as the owner's representative, as a general contractor and as a subcontractor. As a Contractor, I have been an estimator, a purchasing agent, a cost engineer, a scheduling engineer, a safety engineer, a field engineer, an office manager, a superintendent, an office engineer, a project manager, a manager of construction and a construction company owner on numerous construction projects.
