Dic Raeon – Retirement from 24 Years with Warner

Warner extends its General Counsel, Mr. Dic Raeon a heart-felt thank you for his twenty-four years of service to Warner Construction Consultants, Inc., as he brings closure to his forty-year career in construction litigation, and supporting services as General Counsel.  Dic has helped make Warner what it is today through his tenuous attention to detail and providing a fair and level response to legal issues that are well-articulated and clearly presented without hyperbole. Dic will be missed in many ways, his sagely advice and counsel which were always right to the point, helped the company clarify and understand the right path in many situations.

Having already had a successful career as a construction litigator, Dic was a great addition to Warner with his extensive knowledge of the principles of construction, its legal aspects, and procurement contract law, as well his substantial experience in claims litigation and alternative dispute resolution.  After joining Warner, Dic served as the head of Warner’s Disputes Resolution Group for a period of time where he either lead, or oversaw, Warner’s staff on a number of complex construction disputes.  He headed the DRG group while serving as liaison with Counsel for Warner’s clients, before becoming Warner’s full-time General Counsel for many years.

During his career at Warner, Dic actively participated in the management of some of Warner’s largest and most complex cases and, in fact, served as Warner’s Project Executive for its work on both the Peace Shield (Boeing Aerospace) and Petrogasbol (Brown & Root) projects. Dic also served in that capacity in connection with Warner’s engagement related to the construction of the Passenger Terminal at the Hong Kong International Airport (at Chek Lap Kok).

Warner now sends its best to Dic on the occasion of his retirement; wishing him all the best his new adventures, whether it be on the sea or in foreign ports-of-call.
