Adams and Reese construction and real estate attorney David Toney, in the law firm’s Houston office, was interviewed in a Texas Lawyer article, “Rock & Role: GC Finds Solid Ground in Stone Business,” published on the magazine’s web site on June 10th.
The article discusses the best practices of General Counsel Christian Garza of Houston-based Cosentino North America, a privately-held business that manufactures and supplies stone and quartz construction surface products such as bathroom and kitchen counters.
Toney works with Garza on best practices related to product warranties and building-product literature. He says Garza is forward-thinking, as the GC demonstrated when first introducing the firm to Cosentino.
“He set up a meeting for me and a partner with his entire legal department and customer service team — a lunch and learn — for all of us to get on the same page,” Toney said. “It was an easy, quick way for us to get up to speed on his internal clients’ needs.”
At Adams and Reese, Toney practices primarily in the areas of construction disputes, commercial litigation, products liability, personal injury defense and toxic tort litigation.
Toney was elected President for 2011 for the Houston Bar Association’s Construction Law Section after serving as that section’s President-Elect for 2010, Secretary/Treasurer for 2009, and on its council in 2007 and 2008.
His broad experience in business and commercial litigation, as well as construction and real estate litigation includes complex, multi-party commercial and residential construction disputes concerning construction and design defects, product failure and warranty claims. Toney was named among the Texas Super Lawyers® in 2012 and 2013, following the selection to Texas Rising Stars® from 2008-2011, which both recognize Texas attorneys based on peer evaluations.
