“I love working for construction and manufacturing clients because it gives me the opportunity to contribute to large-scale projects and lasting end results. Every time I go through the Beacon Hill Tunnel in Seattle, I point it out to my kids because I am proud to have supported the team that built it. This work is important, and I feel privileged every day to partner with clients to build the future and help our society thrive and grow.”

— John Theiss, Founding Partner, Truss Faber

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 asked us to start this firm because they need 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. Our clients move fast and have high standards — thanks to our many years of experience successfully resolving legal matters for construction and manufacturing companies, our clients never need to slow down to get us up to speed.


A successful construction law firm certainly needs to be savvy, thoughtful and highly competent in understanding the law. Just as important, the firm must understand how construction works in the field. Experience working in the trenches of a jobsite brings legal issues into sharper focus. A successful construction law firm must also understand the business implications of any legal strategy. Founded with deep construction experience, legal savvy and business acumen, Truss Faber takes great pride in serving its clients, providing counsel that improves the bottom line as much as it solves problems in the field.
