Bob Pritchard recently joined BRPC as a partner in the Fort Lauderdale office. Mr. Pritchard has vast experience representing developers, general contractors, subcontractors, design professionals and material suppliers for over 25 years. During his early years in Southern California, he trained and supervised a team of 12 attorneys exclusively devoted to construction litigation matters.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, he was employed by both a reinsurance company and a reinsurance brokerage firm giving him insight into insurance coverage matters beyond the typical coverage issues faced in construction litigation.
Mr. Pritchard received a B.A. in Bushiness & Economics from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He attended Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles in two and a half years, receiving his J.D. in 1980.

Mr Pritchard is admitted in all State Courts of California (1980), New Jersey (1980) & Florida (1993). He is also admitted in the U.S. Northern & Central District Courts of California and in all the U.S. District Courts of Florida & New Jersey.

Mr. Pritchard has been an instructor approved by the California Department of Insurance and has presented Department approved seminars involving construction defect litigation to insurance company personnel. He also has been a panelist at a seminar on fenestration systems sponsored by AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association). To provide continuing education to associations, he regularly conducted firm in-house lectures & training sessions on various aspects of handling of construction defect litigation matters.
