Brooks Pierce partner Arty Bolick has been elected Vice Chair of the North Carolina Bar Association's Construction Law Section for the 2011-2012 year.
The Construction Law Section is concerned with issues including public contracting, development, insurance and claims, OSHA compliance, and subcontracting. The section has over 550 members and sponsors CLE programs and services; provides a member newsletter; and helps mold the association's legislative agenda for presentation to the N.C. General Assembly.
Arty's practice focuses on Construction Law and Commercial Litigation. He represents owners, developers, design professionals, construction managers and general contractors in all phases of a construction project. While litigation is a primary focus, he also seeks to provide value to his clients by assisting with contract negotiation and in-project conflict resolution in an effort to avoid the expense of litigation.
Arty also represents public owners in procurement compliance and contract drafting. He is particularly knowledgeable regarding the construction manager at risk delivery method for public entities and has represented both public owners and construction managers in connection with construction manager at risk projects.
Arty has represented clients in trials in state and federal courts, as well as in appeals to the United States Courts of Appeals for the Fourth, Federal and Seventh Circuits and the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
