In construction, Tina assists with contract drafting and negotiation for owners, general contractors, and subcontractors, and particularly enjoys advising clients on Washington’s public construction contracting laws, as well as the regulations for the Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises. For real estate and corporate clients, Tina reviews, drafts, and negotiates a wide variety of contracts in support of day-to-day operations, as well as for significant transactions including mergers and acquisitions and partnerships. She began her career with the firm as a summer associate in the business department.
