Partner

Danny Fuchs is a Partner at Manion Stigger, LLP. Danny has extensive experience supporting general contractors, specialty subcontractors, owners, suppliers, and design professionals in the construction of power generation plants, petrochemical facilities, paper mills, food processing plants, governmental buildings, healthcare, hospitality, commercial, and multifamily facilities across the country. Danny was educated as a civil engineer, worked for a heavy civil contractor, and leans heavily on his years of experience in project management to provide practical advice and meaningful analysis.

Danny has drafted and negotiated contracts for project delivery through design-bid-build, design-build, EPC agreements, construction management at-risk and as-advisor, and fast-track construction methods. He has successfully resolved disputes involving scheduling problems, acceleration, delays, productivity impact, defective construction, defective design, termination, and bond claims through litigation, arbitration, and mediation.

During a project, Danny’s clients regularly look to him to minimize operational risks and manage problems to avoid disputes and deliver a successful project outcome. Danny’s experiences – both in the field and in his legal practice – provide him with the unique ability to address legal issues on a project site with practical considerations in mind.
