Henry C. Spalding III

Director

Prepared. Responsive. Reliable.

Nearly three decades of experience as an attorney has given Henry Spalding a firm understanding of what it takes to succeed: Preparation and organization.

“I will always be the most prepared lawyer in the room. A busy litigation practice like mine requires strong organizational and time management skills,” he says. “I am lucky to have excellent support staff to keep me on track.”

Henry represents businesses across a variety of industries and is a proven litigator with both Virginia and federal court experience. He is a particularly trusted go-to for insurance clients and their policyholders, and is regarded as one of Virginia’s foremost experts in insurance law. He helps businesses and carriers understand their rights, and, if necessary, defend their rights in insurance coverage litigation. He defends clients in both first- and third-party claims related to, among other things, commercial general liability, professional liability, commercial automobile policies, homeowner’s and life insurance policies, and umbrella policies.

In his construction litigation practice, Henry represents general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and homeowners in complex and diverse issues. He has successfully litigated many matters and achieved favorable results for clients, including at trial in both state and federal courts throughout Virginia.

“I appreciate the complexity of construction law and the problem-solving approaches I take in litigation,” Henry says.

A graduate of the University of Richmond’s School of Law, Henry regularly speaks on topics such as mechanics’ liens, green building issues, and Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) complaints.
