At the O’Leary Law Firm, John J. O’Leary has helped
real estate developers, architects, contractors,
subcontractors, and property managers throughout
Chicagoland respond to market forces, capitalize on
growing trends, and protect their real estate
development and construction businesses for more
than 20 years. He works with clients to address the
complexity of the new challenges that arise in the
current market as well as the perennial issues –
construction and structural defects, construction
delays, unanticipated site conditions, design
changes, financing requirements and tenant build out
provisions – which regularly arise in real estate
developments and construction projects.
A panel of judges at the Civilian
Board of Contract Appeals in Washington, D.C.
ruled on December 9, 2014 that Kiewit-Turner, a
construction partnership, could walk away from
an agreement to build a Colorado Veterans
Affairs (VA) facility.
