Founded in 2014 with the opening of offices in Northern Virginia and San Francisco, Varela, Lee, Metz & Guarino (VLMG) represents clients spanning the breadth of the construction industry, including owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, sureties, and public agencies. VLMG’s attorneys have handled litigation and arbitration across the United States and around the world involving a diverse spectrum of construction projects, including civil, industrial, power, commercial, and military/government projects, among many others. VLMG’s attorneys also have substantial experience in counseling clients during ongoing projects, as well as the drafting or review of contract documents.
The four name partners in VLMG boast over 80 years of total experience serving clients in this unique industry, and are regularly included in rankings of the top lawyers in the field. The other attorneys joining the firm at its inception all have spent the vast majority of their careers representing clients in the construction and engineering fields. As a result, VLMG offers clients the experience and knowledge base of a much larger law firm, while maintaining the responsiveness and value-driven services that can be expected from a smaller boutique.
