07/16/2015

Larkin Hoffman, long known for its dedicated real estate litigation practice, is proud to announce that four of the region’s top construction, surety and mechanics’ lien practitioners will be joining the firm on August 1, 2015. Dave Hammargren, Paul Meyer, Jason Tarasek and Jim Sander will be moving just a few miles from their current offices on American Boulevard in Bloomington to Larkin Hoffman’s new offices in the 8300 Tower at Normandale Lake Office Park.
 
Dave Hammargren and Paul Meyer have been representing contractors, subcontractors, sureties, design professionals, owners and lenders in all types of construction and surety litigation and arbitration for nearly 30 years. Together, they founded Hammargren and Meyer, P.A. in 1996. “We have had an excellent professional relationship with Larkin Hoffman throughout the years,” said Dave Hammargren. “We are looking forward to joining a leading real estate litigation practice that also has the full support of a general practice firm in important areas for our clients, including real estate transactional work, government relations, land use, taxation and general corporate and litigation work.”
 
Jason Tarasek and Jim Sander, who will also be joining Larkin Hoffman from the same firm, echoed the sentiment. “Larkin Hoffman presents an excellent platform to build my practice far into the future,” said Jason Tarasek. Jason and Jim focus their practices on construction, especially in defects litigation, and creditors’ remedies, including mechanics’ liens and the collection of payments for contractors, engineers and architects.
 
Bill Griffith, president of Larkin Hoffman, welcomed the new attorneys as part of the firm’s long-term goal to provide a strong regional practice for business clients. “For nearly 60 years, Larkin Hoffman has been an innovative firm in the delivery of service and value to clients. We are thrilled to welcome these top-rated construction litigators to our well-known and successful real estate practice. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience that will help those we serve.”
