ADDITION OF KING & KING PRINCIPALS STRENGTHENS WINSTEAD SECHREST AND MINICK CONSTRUCTION LAW PRACTICE

 ADDITION OF KING & KING PRINCIPALS STRENGTHENS WINSTEAD SECHREST
 AND MINICK CONSTRUCTION LAW PRACTICE
 DALLAS, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas-based law firm Winstead Sechrest and Minick P.C. is combining its Construction Law Practice Area with internationally prominent government contracts and construction contract claims law firm King & King, the oldest law firm in Washington, D.C.
 King & King's three principals officially became WS&M shareholders effective Dec. 31, 1991. They are: Paul E. McNulty, James A. Pemberton and Christopher M. McNulty.
 Established 125 years ago, King & King is highly regarded for its engineering and procurement legal work, both in the United States and abroad, on behalf of U.S. and international contracting firms.
 In recent years King & King's lawyers have been involved in contract disputes and related legal matters arising from military and civilian construction projects in Saudi Arabia and Israel, AID-financed sewer projects in Egypt, the English Channel Tunnel, a hydroelectric facility in California, state and federal highways and dams in the United States, U.S. Embassies in Bahrain, Yugoslavia and South Africa, coal loading facility in Chile, an Air Force Base in Oklahoma, hotels in New York City and Aruba and urban water control projects in Arizona and Mississippi.
 The services provided by King & King to its clients typically range from assistance in negotiating and drafting contracts, bid protests, advice regarding administration of large contracts, to preparation and litigation of claims in forums as diverse as state and federal courts, arbitration before the American Arbitration Association and the International Chamber of Commerce and hearings before United States Government Boards of Contract Appeals. The firm has also successfully employed mediation and other forms of Alternative Disputes Resolution (ADR). King & King has frequently worked with the Associated General Contractors of America and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA).
 "Our firm's business in 1866 centered around litigation against the United States due to construction and engineering contracts entered into during the Civil War," said Paul McNulty. "Today, the major portion of our work continues to involve similar civil works and private construction claims. We are very successful at negotiating settlements but are equally successful litigating if it is not possible to achieve a settlement. We're quite excited to join with WS&M, because our combined approaches to construction law will greatly broaden the firm's practice."
 "WS&M is one of the country's few full-service law firms to devote an entire practice area to construction," said attorney Steve Nelson, who headed WS&M's construction law practice area since 1981. "It has always been our goal to expand our practice internationally. King & King's attorneys bring a tremendous amount of experience and an unparalleled professional heritage to make this growth possible."
 The new depth afforded by King & King is especially timely as it gives WS&M's construction law practice increased ability to address the just-passed $151 billion Intermodal Surface Transportation Act of 1991, the largest such federal bill since Congress created the National Highway System in 1956. The six-year bill gives states and local agencies greater flexibility in using federal money on transportation construction projects.
 Winstead Sechrest & Minick P.C. is one of the largest Texas-based full-service law firms with offices in Dallas, Houston, Austin, Washington, D.C. and London. The firm provides representation and legal counsel to a broad range of financial institutions, publicly and privately-held companies, real estate and other commercial enterprises.
