In addition, Diwik represents clients in a variety of commercial transactions and disputes, including informal and formal dispute resolution processes.

“James’ breadth of experience and skills are an ideal fit as we look to continue growing our construction practice,” said Bill Withrow, Chair of Troutman Sanders Litigation Department. “From advising commercial clients to managing public and private construction contract procurements and disputes, his range of experience will add value to the practice.”
