Thorough, Reliable, Tenacious, Accessible
The label “boutique firm” is often abused by small general practice law firms. Flatt & Dale prides itself on being a true boutique with deep expertise in the construction industry. We only serve construction industry clients but we satisfy virtually all of their legal needs. We represent suppliers, subcontractors, general contractors and designers, from family-owned to multinational, with their local, national and international legal needs. Our highly skilled legal professionals provide a comprehensive array of services routinely required by construction industry clients including litigation, mediation, arbitration, corporate formation and governance, commercial transactions, drafting and negotiating construction and commercial contracts, and asset protection for our corporate clients and their principals.
Flatt & Dale is small enough to ensure a named shareholder’s personal attention on every matter we handle. Each of our clients receive individual attention throughout the course of the matter for which they require legal services. Many of our clients feel as though the attorneys at Flatt & Dale are like their own in-house counsel with whom they consult day-to-day during the course of a project to avoid legal disputes.
Flatt & Dale has teamed with special counsel Brent Wilson and his nationally recognized and renowned labor and employment firm Elarbee Thompson to provide our retainer and other clients with timely, efficient, and cost-effective assistance and advice with, among other things, OSHA, EEOC, I-9, Wage & Hour, Independent Contractor, Davis Bacon, Immigration, Union, Discrimination, and Class Action issues that are prevalent in the construction industry. Mr. Wilson and Elarbee Thompson are trial tested and accomplished, including matters in which Mr. Flatt and Mr. Wilson have worked together, over the past several years, to secure favorable results for clients.
The value provided by Flatt & Dale starts with our attorneys' use of the latest technologies to communicate efficiently and effectively with our clients and level the playing field when pitted against the largest law firms in the country. From video conferencing and screen sharing to a virtually boundless legal library and the use of relational databases, Flatt & Dale is able to keep our clients well informed and to prevail over much larger law firms on cases involving millions of pages of ESI discovery, all at a fraction of the cost of many of our competitors. In fact, Flatt & Dale does not charge their clients for Atlanta metro area mileage, most postage or ESI discovery storage and maintenance.
