He focuses on multiparty contract disputes, defective construction claims, property damage claims, personal injury claims, design and engineering matters, environmental claims and related insurance coverage disputes. Helmut also provides advice and counsel to numerous architects, engineers, construction managers, contractors, developers, owners, and public authorities and their insurers, and occasionally lectures on various construction-related topics.
