Jeremy Vermilyea, a shareholder in the Portland office of Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, was recently presented with the much-coveted Associated General Contractors Oregon-Columbia Chapter (AGC) President's Award.
AGC's past president, Jim McKune, presented Vermilyea with the President's Award at a recent AGC Associates Council meeting. He noted Vermilyea's "willingness to do whatever it took to help Oregon's construction industry" as among the reasons for bestowing him with the honor. Vermilyea currently serves as the counsel to the board of directors of the chapter. He has previously served on the board as well as on various other chapter committees. In 2011, Vermilyea received the Paul Emerick Training Award from AGC in recognition of his countless volunteer hours training contractors and others.
Vermilyea focuses his practice in the areas of construction, commercial litigation, real estate and environmental law. He has over 15 years of experience representing general contractors, specialty contractors, developers, design professionals and other members of the construction industry. He has litigated numerous complex matters in the state and federal courts including public works payment claims, ERISA claims, construction delay claims, construction defect claims, and lien and bond claims. Vermilyea received his juris doctor degree from Vermont Law School.
