  • Gibbs Giden Locher Turner Senet & Wittbrodt LLP is proud to be named as a leading California Construction Law Firm in the recently released Chambers USA publication for the tenth consecutive year. Our Firm also congratulates the four following key individuals that were named as leading attorneys under the California Construction Law section of the 2013 Chambers USA guide: Glenn E. Turner, III, Barbara R. Gadbois, Richard J. Wittbrodt and Marion T. Hack. This is the first time that Chambers USA has recognized two leading women from one firm under the California Construction Law segment. Ms. Gadbois continues to be the top Chambers USA rated female attorney from a law firm headquartered in Southern California. Our firm has been a leader in the construction industry for over three decades and recently added two new attorneys to support this practice area, Mark R. Stapke and Nathan D. O’Malley, LL.M.

    Mr. Stapke joins the Firm as a Partner with over twenty-nine years of experience in handling all aspects of construction law on a state and national level. He has experience in all types of construction-related matters, from contract drafting, on-project dispute resolution, alternative dispute resolution, arbitration, and litigation in state courts and federal courts. Mr. Stapke has represented owners of all sizes and specialties, national and regional contractors, specialty subcontractors, developers, architects, engineers, and material suppliers.

    As an industry leader, the Firm responds quickly to client demand. The increased focus of California companies expanding into foreign markets led to the recent formation of an International Business and Dispute Resolution practice area. The firm welcomes Nathan D. O’Malley, Esq., LL. M., as Senior Counsel to lead this practice area. Mr. O Malley joins us with international arbitration and contracts experience in construction related matters. Mr. O’Malley has a unique background as an international arbitration practitioner based in Europe for the past decade. His California roots and specialized knowledge of cross-border business disputes fits in well with our existing practice representing large U.S. based companies with international operations and public entities with international exposures. Mr. O’Malley brings the experience of representing clients in arbitrations, including construction disputes, seated in diverse jurisdictions, such as Stockholm, Geneva, Zurich, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Amsterdam, The Hague, Frankfurt am Main and Toronto. He has acted in matters subject to a wide range of rules, including the ICC, Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, World Intellectual Property Organization, UNCITRAL, Swiss and Netherlands Arbitration Institute Rules and he’s the author of a leading treatise on evidentiary procedure in international arbitration, The Rules of Evidence in International Arbitration: an Annotated Guide, (Informa, London), published in 2012.
