Taft is pleased to welcome experienced Litigation attorneys Daniel Edwards and John Gambill to its Columbus office. Both will join as partners in the firm’s Litigation practice group.
Edwards represents contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, owners, and sureties in all aspects of construction. His practice includes litigation and advocacy before state and federal courts, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA), the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals (CBCA), the Government Accountability Office (GAO), local, state, and federal agencies and arbitration before various tribunals, including the American Arbitration Association (AAA). Before Taft, Edwards was part of one of the largest law firms based in the Southern and Midwestern United States. He also served active duty in the United States Air Force where he worked for the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) as a government contracts trial attorney.
Gambill represents contractors, subcontractors, and project owners in front-end construction contract negotiations, as well as claims arising out of commercial construction projects of all sizes in both arbitration and litigation proceedings in both state and federal courts. He has litigated cases at the trial court and throughout the appellate process, including arguing a complex contractual issue before the Ohio Supreme Court. Prior to joining Taft, Gambill owned a firm in Southern Ohio and was most recently a member of a leading Midwestern law firms’ construction group.
“Dan and John joining Team Taft add even more incredible talent to our infrastructure, building, and industry bench here in Central Ohio,” said Taft partner and environmental/energy litigator April Bott Moore. “Their robust construction litigation experience give us the talent we need to handle all aspects of major projects from start to finish. I am excited to welcome them to our Columbus office.”
“We welcome Dan and John to Taft as we know their years of experience, skills, and talents will serve our clients very well and they will build with others in this market and across all of our markets to continue to deliver top-notch construction litigation experience,” added Taft Columbus partner-in-charge Janica Pierce Tucker,
