Ross brings more than a decade of experience in business and construction litigation with an extensive background in complex contract claims, design and defect claims, lien claims and bond claims. She is board certified by the Florida Bar in construction law and proficient in eDiscovery protocols and technology.
Prior to relocating to Florida, Ross previously served as in-house corporate counsel for a government contractor in Colorado, where she advised the company on strategic business transactions, federal regulations, insurance coverage, and construction-related claims involving U.S. military projects overseas. She also assisted the company with the preparation of contracts, teaming agreements, joint venture agreements, non-disclosure agreements, purchase orders, modifications, requests for equitable adjustment, and certified claims.
Ross was also a former attorney at an Am Law 100 firm in the Construction Litigation practice, where she represented contractors, developers, designers, and owners in various litigation and arbitration matters involving construction, real estate, and business disputes, including complex contract claims, design and defect claims, lien claims, bond claims, and delay claims.
