Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.

Asha’s specialty is dispute resolution involving construction, energy, insurance, and banking claims. In addition to being an attorney, Asha is a licensed professional engineer, with LEED accreditation and years of experience designing and coordinating multi-million dollar projects as a civil engineer with Parsons Brinckerhoff. Her firsthand experience with the ins and outs of construction, demolition, and green-energy projects makes her an especially effective advocate in litigation matters and contract negotiations spanning those fields.

But that’s not all. Asha is also very experienced in:

  • Representing energy clients, including power plants from New England to the Caribbean, in long term contract negotiations
  • Securing coverage for insureds under commercial general liability, property, data security, and directors’ and officers’ policies, including through litigation against insurance companies under the Maine’s Unfair Settlement Practices Act
  • Construction contract drafting and negotiation
  • Litigation and dispute resolution of construction defect claims and lien and bond claims

In her former life, Asha was:

A civil engineer at Parsons Brinckerhoff, designing and coordinating construction and demolition projects, as well as state and federal transportation and highway safety projects.

When Asha isn’t working, she is…

Working in her garden—or cooking up something delicious with her latest harvest.
