TRUSS FABER \ Legal Counsel for Construction and Manufacturing


Why Choose Truss Faber?




We find smart, creative solutions to legal challenges. We’re great chess players.

We tell it how it is.

Our clients move fast. We never slow them down.

Our clients asked us to start this firm because they needed a legal team that understands the business of large construction projects and manufacturing operations worldwide. These industries are complex and high risk. With international supply chains and projects running in the hundreds of millions of dollars, success can live or die on small technical details. We provide our clients with the support they need with straightforward legal advice, complex litigation practice and general counsel services.  

Legal Advice

We offer clear, direct and transparent legal advice. We focus on pursuing solutions to resolve the matter expeditiously instead of drawing it out to incur more legal fees.

Complex Litigation

We help clients avoid litigation and we engage in litigation aggressively, depending on clients’ business needs and objectives.

Fractional General
Counsel Services

We can work as part of your team,  providing the benefits of on-call legal advice and support, without requiring the high overhead of having full-time in-house attorneys.

What sets us apart?

Truss Faber is uniquely positioned to support companies in construction and manufacturing legal matters; our founding attorney has also been a CEO of an international heavy civil construction firm. Our clients benefit from our decades of experience solving complex legal problems at some of the nation's biggest law firms, without the large overhead or layers of billing attorneys.

Construction & Manufacturing

Thanks to our many years of experience successfully resolving legal matters for construction and manufacturing companies, you will never need to slow down to get us up to speed.

Flexible & Innovative

We believe one size fits none.
We work with our clients to develop partnership and fee structures that fit their business objectives.

A Business-First

We’re focused on your bottom line and your success through thoughtful, action-oriented legal counsel. More importantly, we offer our clients the benefit of our experience to set a course that is legally prudent, yet business oriented.

Versatile Legal

Truss Faber is a full-service law firm, offering our clients the full array of legal services — from advice on a claim, to drafting and negotiating a contract, to complex litigation and arbitration.

The name Truss Faber was born from our purpose of supporting industries that operate with craftspeople, builders and makers.


Both “truss” and “faber” serve as reminders to our clients that our firm's ultimate mission is not about us, it is about them.

READ: The Story Behind the Name


In all situations, do what's best for the Client, even if it's to our own detriment.

There is no greater way to build a reputation than to steadfastly do what's right for others. Every day.

Take pride in the quality of your work.

Take pride in the quality of everything you touch and everything you do. Always ask yourself, "Is this my best work?" Everything you touch has your signature. Sign in bold ink.

Prioritize, reward, and celebrate results.

While effort is appreciated, we reward and celebrate results. Set high goals, use measurements to track your progress, and hold yourself accountable for achieving those results.

Use rapid response to stand out from the crowd.

People expect us to respond to their questions and concerns quickly, whether it's in person, on the phone, or by e-mail. This includes simply acknowledging that we got the question and we're "on it", as well as keeping those involved continuously updated on the status of outstanding issues. Rapid response is one of the easiest and best ways to stand out from the crowd.

Focus on improvement & keep getting better.

Be relentless about improvement. Regularly reevaluate every aspect of your job to find ways to improve. Don't be satisfied with the status quo. "Because we've always done it that way" is not a reason. Keep getting better.

Take personal responsibility for making things happen — somehow, someway.

Respond to every situation by looking for how we can do it, rather than explaining why it can't be done. Be resourceful and show initiative.

Preventing issues is always more effective than fixing them.

Look ahead and anticipate. Solve problems before they happen by anticipating future needs and addressing them in advance.

Win/win solutions are always more effective & longer lasting.

It's a 2-way street. Learn to think from others' perspective. Discover what they need and find a way to help them meet those needs while also fulfilling your own. Win/win solutions are always more effective and longer lasting than win/lose solutions.

Don't make assumptions. There's always more to the story.

There's always more to the story than it first appears. Get the facts before jumping to conclusions or making judgements. Be curious about what other information might give you a more complete picture.

Listen generously. Be present & engaged.

Listening is more than simply "not speaking." Be present and engaged. Quiet the noise in your head and let go of the need to agree or disagree. Create space for others to express themselves without judgment. Listen with care and empathy. Above all, listen to understand.

Every interaction sets a tone and creates a feeling.

Every conversation, phone call, e-mail, letter and even voicemail, sets a tone and creates a feeling. Pay attention to every interaction and be sure you're setting a tone of friendliness, warmth, and helpfulness.
