Review Peter McGlynn

About Me

I am the Managing Director of the Litigation Group at Bernkopf Goodman and a trial attorney specializing in construction, surety, malpractice, commercial and bankruptcy cases. I have tried to verdict in excess of 150 cases throughout the United States representing general contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, lenders, sureties and owners, among others, on a wide array of commercial, construction, surety and bankruptcy disputes. In particular, I have represented clients on numerous and diverse construction-related disputes including litigation involving defects and project mismanagement arising out of the construction of a nuclear power plant, defending the officers and directors of a defunct subcontractor for claims by a general contractor arising under the federal RICO statute, banks, a real estate partnerships dispute involving a $3 billion development and construction project, and prosecuting and defending claims arising out of failed or failing construction contractors and subcontractors.
