Who's Who Legal Construction: Lawyers

Danielle J Cole is a founding partner of Blueprint Construction Counsel, LLP, a construction law firm with a practice extending far beyond its south-eastern base. Ms Cole represents construction managers, general contractors, design-builders, joint ventures and other project participants, including a number of the largest ranked by Engineering News-Record. She has represented clients on a wide variety of private, public and PPP projects in the US and abroad, including those involving the construction of sports stadiums; entertainment venues; airports; hospitals; hotels; distribution and data centres; facilities for government operations and education; commercial, multi-use and multi-family residential projects; and power-generation, renewable energy, industrial and infrastructure projects.  

Ms Cole collaborates with clients to facilitate the successful procurement, performance and completion of a construction project by providing counsel, assistance and advocacy through any and all phases. Her practice activities include: procurement-related services; counsel on business and contract-related considerations/strategies; drafting and negotiating prime contracts, subcontracts, teaming and joint venture agreements, and other ancillary agreements; project counsel and project support services designed to proactively identify, eliminate, mitigate and resolve project risk-related issues; workforce training; corporate counsel services; claims preparation and defence; and representation in contentious matters including complex mediation, litigation and arbitration. She is experienced in addressing and resolving a variety of issues commonly encountered on a project, including those relating to changes, payment, contingency, licensing, insurance, bonds, liens, delays, default, termination, indemnification, defective work and other contract issues.

Ms Cole’s expertise in construction law has been noted in annual publications of several highly regarded, independent, legal referral guides identifying leading practitioners based on comprehensive in-depth research and client-led intelligence, including Who’s Who LegalChambers USA and The Legal 500: United States. Her recognition for expertise in construction litigation in Georgia Super Lawyers and Georgia Super Lawyers – Rising Stars, and attainment of the highest possible rating for ethics and legal ability by Martindale-Hubbell (AV Preeminent), result from peer-provided assessments.

Ms Cole serves on the governing committee of the American Bar Association’s forum on construction law and is past chair of its international construction division. She is also a past chair of the Atlanta Bar Association’s construction law section. Ms Cole served on the board of directors for the National Association of Women in Construction’s Atlanta chapter, and has supported the Associated General Contractors of America as a member of both its contract documents forum and ConsensusDocs working group responsible for developing form joint venture, teaming and construction management agreements.

WWL says: Danielle Cole receives plaudits from peers internationally for her work in the construction sector. She is well versed in advising prominent clients on public, private and PPP projects.
