Lauren McLaughlin is a founding partner of BrigliaMcLaughlin, PLLC, a law firm devoted exclusively to construction industry and surety clients.  For the past 16 years, she has represented owners, developers, contractors, subcontractors, sureties and design professionals in all aspects of public and private construction projects.  With that perspective, she counsels clients on project risk management and litigation avoidance.

The breadth of her practice includes working on diverse projects such as the first foreign-owned power plant in the People’s Republic of China; the third largest facility owned by the United States government; two federal prison complexes; a major hotel and convention center complex; an urban housing and development program; a unique biomedical research facility; and countless central utility plants.  In these and other disputes, Lauren has successfully tried dozens of complex cases in state and federal courts throughout Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, and the District of Columbia, as well as arbitral panels, administrative boards and boards of contract appeals. 

Having represented all parties in the privity chain, Lauren is intimately familiar with the unique leverage perspectives of the owner, contractor, and subcontractor.  She understands the business aspects confronting construction companies from employment and compliance issues to bid day deals, from change order negotiation to electronic project management systems.  She has worked extensively with performance bond sureties, mechanical contracting firms, glass and glazing contractors, and in support of excavation contractors.  Lauren’s construction clients routinely involve her at all phases of the project, from conception and value engineering through final completion.

Lauren McLaughlin’s firm is rated by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best construction law firms in Virginia. As a result of her experience, Ms. McLaughlin is regularly invited to speak to industry and professional organizations, including the Construction Superconference, the Structural Engineers Association of Texas; Building Envelope Contractors Association; the Forum on the Construction Industry (ABA); Surety Claims Institute; Mechanical Contractors Association of America; Fidelity & Surety Law Committee (ABA); and the Construction Law and Public Contracts Section of the Virginia Bar Association.  Ms. McLaughlin is a Board member to the American Subcontractors Association of Metro-Washington. She also regularly contributes to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) monthly publication, Civil Engineering, where she is the co-author of “The Law” column.
