In negotiating and litigating claims in city, county, state and federal courts, Randy has represented contractors at all levels in matters involving defective specifications, constructive changes, acceleration, excusable and compensable delays, differing site conditions, terminations for default, and structured settlements for terminations for the convenience of the government. Randy has also successfully defended manufacturers of specialty construction equipment against products related claims.

Randy represents both awardees and protestors in bid protests involving the Arizona Procurement Office, various federal agencies, and has appeared before the Comptroller General of the General Accounting Office.
