I enjoy providing clients with peace of mind by helping them navigate the legal process to further their continued success. 

Adams and Reese Associate Claire Sauls primarily practices in construction defect matters, premise liability claims, breach of contract issues, and commercial insurance defense.

Claire works with clients to understand a thorough analysis of the legal issues presented and how they impact their business, potential defenses and counterclaims, while providing continuous clear communication with her clients. 

Claire is a member of the Adams and Reese construction team, one of the largest construction practices in the nation with more than 90 attorneys licensed in more than 30 states and serving the legal needs of the construction industry across the firm's footprint.
