Jackson B. Boyd


Jackson B. Boyd is an associate with Ober|Kaler’s Construction and Litigation Groups. Jack handles complex civil litigation with a concentration in construction, business and financial matters. In the construction law arena, Jack represents owners, general contractors and subcontractors in contract formation and construction disputes on a variety of private and public projects. He was named a “Rising Star” in Construction Litigation in 2013 and in Construction and Real Estate in 2014 by Maryland Super Lawyers.

As part of his litigation practice, Jack has represented clients in state and federal courts, administrative law hearings, arbitration hearings and mediation conferences. Jack was recently an integral member of a litigation team that presented a plaintiff's case at a week-long arbitration relating to a condominium board's failure to maintain and repair the common elements of a high-rise building in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The arbitration panel consisted of three retired Maryland judges. The litigation team represented a unit owner that suffered significant damages stemming from water infiltration into a penthouse condominium unit and was able to obtain both a monetary damages award and an order of specific performance for repairs to the building’s roof system and exterior facade. The award, which was affirmed by the Court of Special Appeals, is believed to be Maryland's largest judgment against a condominium board for failure to maintain and repair common elements resulting in damages to a single unit owner.

Other examples of Jack’s recent successes include:

  • Obtaining a $429,915 judgment at trial for a financial services client, which was affirmed by the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland;
  • Defending a conversion claim at trial against a national retail client; 
  • Winning a Baltimore City bid protest that enabled a professional health services client to be awarded a $1,000,000 annual services contract with the City after it had initially been disqualified; and
  • Obtaining a permanent injunction directing an entity to comply with its statutory and contractual obligations to produce records.

Jack is also active in the community, serving on the Board of Trustees of the Baltimore Museum of Industry and on the Advisory Committee for the Business Volunteers Maryland GIVE Program.
