John Ralls, Aaron Gruber, and Sam Niece specialize in construction law, government contracts, and business litigation and together have over 50 years of large international law firm experience (practicing at Thelen, Howrey, and Jones Day). Ralls Gruber & Niece was started in 2011 to enable its partners to provide the same sophisticated legal services offered at their prior firms, but without the rate, conflict, and overhead restrictions endemic to large law firms.

John Ralls, Aaron Gruber, and Sam Niece have represented all participants in the construction process, including owners, developers, design professionals, prime contractors, subcontractors, equipment suppliers, insurers, and sureties. They have represented clients on a range of public and private construction projects, from huge industrial facilities and large infrastructure projects to smaller commercial building projects. They have represented some of the largest developers, contractors, and design firms in the United States as well as a number of small and medium sized companies.

The practice of Ralls Gruber & Niece covers the range of construction law and government contracts, including contract drafting and advice, bid protests, strategic counseling during troubled projects, claim preparation and defense, insurance recovery, mediation, arbitration, litigation, and appeals.

The firm's attorneys frequently write and speak on construction law and government contracts, and spend a significant amount of their time keeping abreast of legal developments in these fields.
