Client Stories

Paul Saunders Roofing

Paul Saunders Roofing is a third-generation family roofing business and since 2017 Dunlap Law has helped its owner, Graham Aston, protect the business and capture new opportunities. 

In mid-2021, Paul Saunders Roofing moved to new headquarters in a historic former auto parts store in Richmond’s Blackwell neighborhood. 

Dunlap Law’s attorneys drafted the contract used to acquire the building and Tricia relied on her experience in McGuireWoods environmental law practice group to protect PSR from liability related to potential environmental issues.  In 2018, when it was acquired, the building was truly distressed as the picture of Tricia and Graham on our homepage shows.  The roof had leaked for years and was partly collapsed.  The interior was littered with debris.  Nevertheless, Graham saw its potential and did not hesitate to buy the property.  Now, with the renovation finished and its tin ceiling restored, the building is a beautiful space for the PSR team.

Dunlap Law also helped Graham create a succession plan for PSR.  In 2018, Graham’s son-in-law Jarrod Frakes joined the company.  Jarrod is poised to carry the family business into the future.  The Dunlap Law team has helped PSR with a variety of business law issues, from employee concerns to contracts and customer issues, we are invested for the long run in PSR’s success.
