  Jean Weil is one of the founding partners of Weil & Drage and has been a construction litigation specialist since 1987, representing some of the top design and construction firms worldwide. In addition to her Federal and State trial practice, Jean's experience includes drafting and negotiating contracts and risk management assistance for private and public works projects in California, Nevada and multiple other states. She continues to specialize in the defense of architects, engineers and construction managers. She has also represented developers, contractors, subcontractors and manufacturers. She has an extremely loyal client base due to her reputation for being an aggressive, hands-on litigator. Jean has focused her practice on complex construction litigation, including catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases, class actions, governmental torts, and business disputes. Jean has worked in every aspect of construction litigation, including multi million/billion projects involving infrastructure, transportation, wastewater treatment facilities, oil refineries, recycling centers, highways, landslides, tunnels, bridges, canals, airports, distribution centers, justice facilities, schools and colleges, hotels, casinos, restaurants, and healthcare facilities, including hospitals/urgent care, residential/mixed use, including high-rise condominiums, apartment complexes and tract housing and high-end single-family homes. In all matters Jean dealt closely with clients and insurance carrier representatives. She is highly regarded for her seminars on the subject of risk management, which she conducts across the country. Jean has also successfully argued three matters before the Nevada Supreme Court. The first involved Nevada’s adoption of the economic loss doctrine. The second involved Nevada’s strict enforcement of the certificate of merit statute protecting design professionals. The third involved Nevada’s adoption of the doctrine obstacle preemption, which bars owners’ claims for indemnity for ADA and FHA violations.
