Special Counsel to Columbus City Attorney

Mr. Leach and Mr. Hahn served as special counsel to the Columbus City Attorney for the Big Walnut Augmentation/Rickenbacker Interceptor Sanitary projects where they represented the City on on-going design and construction issues and claims. The projects' value was in excess of $100,000,000 and involved design and construction of sanitary sewer interceptor tunnels of 17,200 and 13,000 feet in length, with finished diameters of 14 feet and 12 feet, respectively. Following a unique week long mediation created by the parties to address the complex engineering and construction issues in dispute, the matter settled for an amount within the City's project construction budget.
