Hoch’s practice includes advising project owners, architects, engineers, and contractors, as well as litigation related to construction disputes.
In addition to representing clients, Hoch is a member of the American Arbitration Association’s national panel for construction industry cases and frequently serves as a mediator and arbitrator in both AAA- and privately administered proceedings. Hoch has been named by Best Lawyers© as “Lawyer of the Year” for Construction Law (2021, 2019, 2016, 2011), and Construction Litigation (2022, 2020, 2017, 2013) in Wichita, Kansas.
To be eligible for nomination and election to the ACCL, an attorney must be engaged full time in construction law. Fellows are selected on the basis of demonstrated skill, accomplishments, and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice or teaching of construction law.
