About Me

I specialize in complex commercial litigation and construction law. The scope of my practice has been both domestic and international. I regularly represent owners/developers, engineers, general contractors, and subcontractors on public and private construction projects in the prosecution and defense of a broad range of construction claims, including scheduling/delay/impact damages, payment and performance bonds, mechanic's liens, design defect and change order claims, where the amounts in dispute are upwards of and exceed US$ 100 Million. I also regularly advise clients in connection with pre-bid contract reviews and risk analyses, post-award contract negotiations and drafting, litigation and dispute resolution, general contractual rights and obligations, as well as bankruptcy issues.

I am admitted to practice law before the United States Supreme Court; United States Court of Appeals for the Second and Third Circuits; United States District Court for the Southern, Eastern, and Northern Districts of New York, District of New Jersey, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and the Western District of Wisconsin, as well as the state courts of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
