PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon Partner Patrick R. Kingsley served as a panelist for Strafford’s recent webinar, “Construction Payment and Performance Bond Bad Faith Litigation: Bringing or Defending Claims Amid Differing State Standards.” Kingsley discussed how to defend bad faith claims regarding performance and payment bonds in the construction arena. The panel also discussed extra-contractual theories of liability that have been accepted and rejected by courts and provided perspectives of both construction owners and sureties.
Kingsley, chair of Stradley Ronon’s Construction Practice Group, has tried more than 40 cases involving diverse legal claims and fact patterns in several different forums across the country. He handles a wide variety of complex commercial disputes, focusing much of his practice on construction and surety litigation. As a trial lawyer, Kingsley has tried both jury and non-jury cases and has represented clients in arbitrations, mediations and hearings before administrative law judges and referees. He also serves as an adjunct professor at Rutgers University School of Law, instructing students on trial advocacy skills.
