Mr. Kraftson specializes in the areas of construction and government contract law focusing primarily on the preparation, negotiation, and litigation of claims for additional time and money, under fixed price and cost reimbursable contracts, claim analysis under government and private construction contracts, as well as counseling contractors and owners regarding the drafting and negotiating of contract terms. He has also served as legal counsel on several design-build and public-private venture proposals, subsequently handling contract negotiations on such projects. Mr. Kraftson’s practice is both national and international in scope and has involved representation of both construction owners and construction contractors on a wide variety of projects ranging from wastewater treatment facilities and chemical processing plants, to highways and nuclear and fossil power plants. His involvement in construction litigation in numerous state and federal courts, arbitration proceedings, administrative hearings, and other dispute resolution forums, enables him to maintain an in-depth knowledge of the federal, state, and local government law pertaining to construction contracting. These cases have typically involved claims for changes, differing site conditions, delay and disruption, and the impact and ripple effect of changes in the construction schedule, and the costs of performance. As a result, Mr. Kraftson is intimately familiar with CPM scheduling principles and construction cost analysis, and has worked extensively with construction claims, scheduling, and accounting experts.
