Mr. Greenleaf has been on the AAA Construction Panel for 33 years. He has gone to hearing and proceeded through Award in over 200 construction industry disputes and has served on cases with claims in excess of $600 million and projects with values exceeding $6 billion. He is currently serving as Chairman of a Dispute Review Board presiding over Colorado’s “Big Dig” project, the Central I-70 expansion project. His experience covers all areas of ADR including arbitration, early neutral evaluation, dispute review boards and mediation.
In 2001, he moved from Texas to Colorado and his practice expanded from a regional to a national practice. He co-founded Berg Hill Greenleaf Ruscitti LLP, a law firm with offices in Denver, Boulder, Los Angeles and Cheyenne, and he has worked on construction projects in 45 states as well as internationally.
With most of his work being focused on ADR, he formally retired from BHGR in 2019 to continue his work in the ADR community, where he focuses exclusively on construction arbitration and other forms of ADR for the construction industry. He is based near Denver, Colorado but has a national practice with more than 80% of his cases involving large scale projects and disputes throughout the United States.
In addition to his practice, Mr. Greenleaf is active in the construction law community nationally, frequently speaking and writing on construction law and arbitration topics. He is celebrating his 33rd year on the American Arbitration Association’s Construction Panel, is a member of the AAA’s Construction Mega Panel and was the founding co-chair of the College of Commercial Arbitrators Construction Arbitration Section.
