Construction Contracts and Litigation

Construction firms face the normal issues of every business, but, in addition, a complex array of regulations, insurance coverage questions, and unique contractual provisions that many businesses do not.

Josh Johnson, Brett Marston, and Spencer Wiegard are three of 50 lawyers at Gentry Locke who cover the Virginia legal landscape. If you own a business, we have the experience to help you succeed.

We speak the language of government compliance.

Government regulation of business is getting more complex and harder to understand every day. Our lawyers are fluent in the alphabet soup of rules and regulations that apply to your business. A compliance checkup with Brooke Rosen, Lindsey Coley, or Christen Church will help you translate acronyms into action items, and avoid costly misunderstandings with the regulators.

Employment Law & Hospitality/Restaurant Industry Law

Specializing in employment law with a focus on the restaurant, hotel and hospitality industry, Paul Klockenbrink has seen it all. "If you are an employer, anything can happen. You're dealing with people. That's what makes what I do so fascinating and challenging. I get to find creative solutions that help make the business more successful."

Our Managing Partner

Monica Monday has handled more than 100 appeals in Virginia's state and federal appellate courts. She has successfully argued appeals in a wide variety of cases including commercial and business disputes, personal injury cases, local government matters, domestic relations cases and more.

Monica became our Managing Partner in January of 2013, and still heads Gentry Locke's Appellate practice group -- a team of attorneys with over 100 years of combined experience in handling appeals. If you are faced with an important legal matter, attorneys at Gentry Locke have the experience to help you succeed.

Criminal & Government Investigations

Along with Guy Harbert and Justin Lugar, Scott Austin and Tom Bondurant are part of a team of lawyers at Gentry Locke working in Criminal and Government Investigations.

Increased regulatory oversight is a reality for corporations in nearly every business sector of the economy. Sometimes it's necessary for a company to have an advocate in matters concerning government or law enforcement relations. When faced with such issues, experience counts.
