The team at Bachara Construction Law Group is pleased to announce the addition of William (Will) H. Hilton, III as the firm’s newest attorney. In the BCLG tradition, Hilton brings both legal acumen and direct construction industry experience to his practice.
“We’re extremely pleased to welcome Will Hilton as our newest attorney,” said Chip Bachara, BCLG’s managing partner. “Will’s record of success and background in the construction industry make him a great fit for our team and an asset to our clients.”
With a civil engineering degree from Virginia Tech, Hilton began his professional life as a project engineer and project manager for large construction firms in Maryland. But after a few years of observing issues and conflicts that could have been avoided by better contract drafting, he decided to obtain a law degree. He subsequently joined Brennan, Manna & Diamond, LLC in Jacksonville, where he focused on commercial litigation, mostly centered on construction law and real estate litigation.
Hilton brings a broad background in business law as well as civil litigation to the firm. Immediately prior to joining BCLG, he served in senior legal roles with several corporations, most recently serving as Underwriting Counsel with Fidelity National Title Group in Franklin, Tennessee. Before that, he was sole counsel at DayMark, a real estate investment trust in Jacksonville, overseeing all legal affairs of the company. Earlier, he served as Managing Counsel and Vice President for Fidelity National Title Group. In that role, he directed a team that resolved policy claims and litigation in Delaware, Maryland, D.C., Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee.
In addition to his B.S. in Civil Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, Hilton holds a J.D. from the Florida Coastal School of Law. He is a member in good standing of The Florida Bar and a member of the Jacksonville Bar Association.
“I feel very fortunate to have found a new professional home at such a highly respected and congenial firm,” said Hilton. “Chip and his team are great at what they do and I look forward to serving BCLG’s clients in every sector of the construction industry.”
