WSHB is pleased to announce the opening two new offices in Florida. Trial lawyer Chad Dunigan will be the managing partner of both the Orlando and Jacksonville offices, which brings the total number of offices in Florida to five. Chad will oversee the day-to-day operations and strategic direction of both offices and will also provide guidance and support to the firm’s attorneys to ensure clients receive exceptional service.

"Chad Dunigan's addition as managing partner is a significant milestone for WSHB, underscoring our dedication to delivering unparalleled legal services," said firmwide managing partner, Stewart Reid. "Chad's proven track record and leadership in complex litigation, especially in construction and environmental matters, align seamlessly with the firm's commitment to excellence in our work."

Chad is a seasoned legal professional with a robust litigation practice and has earned national recognition among his peers as a thought-leader and problem-solver. Over his nearly 25 years of practice, Chad's proven track record has been highlighted by exceptional results in complex multi-party construction claims, catastrophic bodily injury claims, and varying environmental matters. His leadership and strategic insight have consistently delivered favorable outcomes for his clients, making him an invaluable addition to the WSHB team.

As the Orlando and Jacksonville offices move forward under Chad's leadership, he will be surrounded by an elite team of 18 attorneys, including 4 partners. These attorneys offer the firm's clients a wealth of experience in navigating clients though a broad spectrum of civil litigation matters, with particular emphasis in commercial construction disputes and bodily injury claims.

"I am honored the firm has entrusted me with this important leadership role and am extremely grateful to be surrounded by this team of attorneys who are all dedicated leaders in their own right, each committed to making a difference for our clients," commented Mr. Dunigan. "WSHB's proven track record of client success through innovative approaches to dispute resolution and advocacy aligns perfectly with my legal philosophy. With the talent that surrounds me, I am convinced we will deliver exceptional results and exceed client expectations."

Chad stands out as a thought leader in construction litigation, boasting expertise in public and private contracting, bidding, and protest issues, mechanics' liens, stop notices, licensing, and surety disputes. With over two decades of legal experience, he passionately represents national developers and general contractors across a diverse range of projects and jurisdictions.

In the realm of environmental litigation, Chad has successfully handled cases involving environmental cleanup and litigation related to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and superfund sites. His deep understanding of environmental law and ability to navigate complex regulations make him an indispensable asset in these challenging matters.

The addition of Mr. Dunigan as the managing partner for the Orlando and Jacksonville offices marks a strategic leap forward for WSHB, solidifying its position as a leading national law firm with industry-leading legal talent.
