Smith, Currie & Hancock’s celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2015. Smith Currie & Hancock was one of the first firms to recognize the need for legal services for the construction industry, and one of few that has remained committed to a focus on providing comprehensive legal services in all aspects of construction law. The firm also has an extensive practice in government contracting, environmental law, and commercial litigation. As part of its government contracting practice, in addition to extensive work on construction projects within the United States and abroad, the firm handles matters relating to timber, concessionaire contracting, federal contracts for natural resources, access to federal lands, and compliance with federal environmental rules. As leaders of construction industry organizations and frequent speakers at industry conferences and workshops, many of the firm’s attorneys bring successful careers as government or private engineering and construction professionals to the practice of law. The firm has significant experience in resolving clients’ disputes in all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) proceedings and decades of demonstrated litigation success.
Over the past 50 years we have participated in thousands of trials, arbitrations, bid protests and mediations, and counseled clients on even more troubled projects, complex contracts, and disputes. That experience serves one critical purpose—it helps us be better prepared for the next call we receive from a client. Despite our continued growth and change, each succeeding generation of Smith Currie attorneys has remained steadfast in our commitment to unparalleled client service and knowledge of the ever-changing laws that govern our core practice areas.
