Christopher G. Hill, LEED AP is a construction attorney in Richmond, Virginia.  Chris is a member of Virginia’s Legal Elite in Construction Law and practices extensively in all areas of risk management for construction professionals as well as litigation when required.  Specific areas of practice include mechanic’s liens, payment and performance bond claims under the Miller Act and Virginia’s “Little Miller Act,” sustainable (“green”) building, occupational safety issues, construction contract review, arbitration and mediation.

Chris started his own firm in July of 2010 after 13 years of extensive courtroom and counseling experience at the Virginia Attorney General’s Office and two private firms, the most recent being DurretteBradshaw PLC.  He made the move in order to better serve his construction clients and directly meet the needs of the contractors and other construction and design professionals in Virginia.

Chris truly enjoys representing contractors in Virginia, whether those construction companies are based in Virginia or based elsewhere and perform work in Virginia.  He represents all types of construction professionals including general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, and material suppliers.

The firm is a member of the Associated General Contractors of Virginia and Chris is a member of the national AGC Contract Documents committee where he gains insight and input into the drafting of nationally utilized form contract documents, and and the Marketing committee where he helps the AGC maximize the marketing and business potential for contractors.

Chris’ experience in representing both private companies and one of the largest agencies of the Commonwealth of Virginia has given him knowledge of both the private and public aspects of legal representation.  He uses this insight to give his clients both practical and legally sound advice during their interactions with both private companies and state agencies.  His years of concentration on the construction industry enable him to assist his construction clients to anticipate potential challenges and help them to prepare for and ultimately overcome those business challenges in an efficient and practical manner.

In addition to his membership in the Virginia Bar, Chris is admitted to practice before the Federal District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U. S. Bankruptcy Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia.
