Nichols Liu Expands Construction and Small Business Practice with Addition of Partner, Hamidinia

Washington, D.C. – June  15, 2020:  Nichols Liu is pleased to announce that Shiva S. Hamidinia has joined the firm as a Partner to expand our construction, government contracting, and small business contracting capabilities.

Shiva helps international and domestic contractors navigate the complex regulatory framework governing state and federal projects.  She has successfully litigated complex construction matters – from design-build joint venture issues, bid protests, payment, delay, disruption, and inefficiency claims, to complaints for wrongful default termination, and surety takeover.

“I’m very excited to join a team that turns the conventional law firm model on its head,” said Shiva.  “The multidisciplinary team at Nichols Liu knows how to deliver impactful value for contractors.  They are way ahead of the traditional legal industry in terms of prioritizing client interests and sharing risks and rewards.”

Shiva represents a diverse client base of women and minority-owned businesses and joint-venture companies, including general contractors, subcontractors, developers, design professionals, construction managers, owners, and sureties.

“Shiva is a triple threat:  smart and creative, focused on solving problems, and clients love her,” said Robert Nichols.  “We are thrilled to bring her claims and small business expertise to our firm.”

Shiva brings with her a stable of loyal clients that consider her to be their go-to outside counsel.  “We are particularly impressed by Shiva’s client following at a relatively early point in her career.  We like to find superstars and help them grow, and Shiva certainly fits that mold,” said Managing Partner Andy Liu.
