Napa Valley Wine Train Project

At a value of over $54 million, the Napa Valley Wine Train Project was, at the time, one of the largest federal stimulus projects in California. The Project involved replacing the Wine Train's rail bridge in downtown Napa, the construction of a new flood wall to protect the Wine Train's station, and the relocation of several miles of tracks. We acted as co-counsel in representing Suulutaaq, Inc., a subsidiary of an Alaska Native Corporation, in a payment and performance dispute with one of its subcontractors.
