The San Diego attorneys at Finch, Thornton & Baird, LLP provide quality legal services to the construction industry, businesses and business owners. In the beginning, the firm’s focus was representation of construction industry clients. Since then, the firm steadily expanded its practice to meet client needs. As a result of developing its practice in the areas required to service the broad needs of the construction industry, the firm’s practice expanded beyond construction law and now includes the areas of business and commercial litigation, business and commercial transactions, labor and employment law, liability defense, insurance coverage, government and regulatory law, real estate, intellectual property, and wealth preservation planning and litigation. The firm serves as general counsel to many of its clients.

The firm is committed to providing the best possible service to its clients in all areas. This goal is a focus in hiring new attorneys and in all facets of the firm’s practice. The firm’s successful representation of clients is reflected by its ongoing representation of many of the same clients it has serviced since the year the firm was founded, and by the Associated General Contractors of America, and other industry organizations and members, regularly calling upon the firm for legal advice, guidance, and representation.

As its clients have expanded into other parts of the state and country, so has the firm’s practice. The firm litigates cases throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado, and has attorneys admitted to practice in the state courts of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and numerous federal courts throughout the country. The firm’s lawyers have won precedent setting cases including before the California Supreme Court. The firm has also structured cross-border business transactions and represents several Canadian based businesses in their U.S. legal matters. Regardless of venue, the firm’s practice has been and will remain quality legal representation.

Finch, Thornton & Baird, LLP has received Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating in recognition of the firm’s professional excellence and highest level of skill and integrity, and the firm is listed in the exclusive Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of preeminent Construction and Employment lawyers.

"While some attorneys are content to 'litigate by numbers' through the use of a rote 'one size fits all' litigation strategy often designed to increase billable hours and fees, Finch, Thornton & Baird, LLP is markedly different . . . ."
