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, and 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:
- Construction contract drafting and negotiation for complex building and energy projects
- Litigation and dispute resolution of construction defect & delay claims and lien and bond claims
- 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
