The Construction Lawyers Society of America is pleased to announce that Charter Fellow Michael Textor of Kutak Rock LLP in Springfield, Missouri, has been named 2020 president of the CLSA.
Michael’s national trial practice involves primarily representing Midwest-based contractors (GC, CM, DB, EPC), engineers, architects and developers. His vast trial and arbitration experience includes more than 100 verdicts and awards throughout the United States. In addition to representing contractors and design professionals (including some of ENR’s leading companies), Michael is a trusted advisor to multiple universities and private developers for their construction and procurement needs.
Michael routinely leads teams of attorneys at Kutak Rock, LLP, providing counsel and solutions to major constituents in the construction industry on projects involving manufacturing, education, health care, entertainment (including sports complexes and arenas), government, transportation (airports, roads and bridges), military, energy and hospitality sectors.
On many occasions throughout his career Michael has been involved in “bet-the-company” litigation for contractors and design professionals, large and small. The results obtained for those clients, and their continued success today, is a constant reminder to Michael of his professional purpose.
Michael’s marriage to Hannah Joy, his wife, of the past 25 years, and their daughter Micah (22) and son Samuel (20), are his true passions in life. Michael has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America for construction law and construction litigation since 2010.
