DALLAS ��Ford Nassen & Baldwin PC has been recognized by the 2012 edition of The Legal 500 United States as one of the nation's top construction law firms.

Legal 500 also highlights the firm's experience in dispute resolution and litigation, including matters involving breaches of contract, construction defects, design responsibility controversies, change order disputes, lien claims, claims prosecution and defense, and insurance. The Legal 500 ranking takes into account both a firm's transactional and litigation work.

In addition, Legal 500 spotlights firm shareholders and name partners Jeffrey A. Ford, John W. Nassen and George C. Baldwin, noting that they possess a "wealth of experience" and are highly recommended as leading construction lawyers.
