Ralls & Niece LLP was founded in 2011 by John Ralls and Sam Niece, who spent over 20 years each with large national law firms (Thelen LLP and Howrey LLP). Ralls & Niece LLP specializes in construction law, government contracts, and business litigation, providing legal services of the highest quality, but from a lower overhead, lower cost platform than the large national firms.

John Ralls and Sam Niece have represented all participants in the construction process, including owners, design professionals, prime contractors, subcontractors, equipment suppliers, and sureties. They have represented clients on a range of public and private construction projects, from huge industrial facilities to smaller commercial building projects. They have represented some of the largest construction and design firms in the United States as well as a number of small and medium sized companies.

The practice of Ralls & Niece LLP covers the range of construction law and government contracts, including contract drafting and advice, bid protests, strategic counseling during troubled projects, claim preparation and defense, insurance recovery, mediation, arbitration, litigation, and appeals.

The firm's attorneys frequently write and speak on construction law and government contracts, and spend a significant amount of their time keeping abreast of legal developments in these fields.
