A construction lawyer with forty years’ experience, Bob Flinn joined Rees Broome from his prior firm, Flinn & Beagan. As counsel in RB’s Tyson’s Corner office, he continues his practice in the areas of commercial litigation, primarily involving construction contracts, zoning and real estate development.
From 1975 to 1979, Bob served as an Assistant County Attorney for Fairfax County, concentrating on zoning and site plan litigation. Since 1979, he’s been in private practice focused on construction and zoning law.  He has exceptional experience representing owners, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers in drafting and negotiating contracts and resolving disputes, through both litigation and arbitration. He also has extensive experience representing parties litigating against local governments due to zoning and site plan disputes. 
Representative cases from his numerous appearances in the state and federal courts of Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia include the following:

  • Recovery of damages and attorney’s fees on behalf of a subcontractor involved in the construction of a large water main after a six-day jury trial in Fairfax County Circuit Court
  • Recovery of fees owed to a subcontractor in a mechanic’s lien action heard in Loudoun County Circuit Court following construction of a resort and hotel
  • Representation of a general contractor in another mechanic’s lien actions brought by the general contractor and its subcontractors to recover monies owed in connection with the construction of a hotel
  • Recovery of damages and attorneys’ fees for a materials supplier in an action on a payment bond of an insolvent general contractor, heard in the federal court for the Eastern District of Virginia
