P&A Solidifies its Position as Dominant Firm in Construction Law

NEW YORK – February 7, 2007: Peckar & Abramson (P&A), one of the nation’s leading construction law firms, announced today that it has expanded to include the attorneys of New York’s Berman, Paley, Goldstein & Monte, LLP in its practice. The firm’s name will remain Peckar & Abramson and the move will give it a stronghold on the civil and heavy construction side of the business, an area in which Berman Paley was a dominant player, representing many of the most notable civil/heavy construction companies.

"Many construction law firms have been acquired by larger, multi-practice area firms in recent years, dramatically changing the landscape in this space," said Robert Peckar, founder and managing partner of P&A. "Our strategy is and always has been to concentrate on construction law and be the best national firm we can be in that area. Our clients will never feel as if they are lost among many different practice areas. This combination is completely consistent with our role as a true construction law firm."

"With P&A’s strength among building and civil contractors and construction managers and Berman Paley’s concentration in civil and heavy construction, we have created a firm that possesses the legal expertise, depth and stellar track record to handle successfully any legal issue for virtually any construction contractor," said Alvin Goldstein, a senior Berman Paley partner. "Our combined client roster is a ‘Who’s Who’ of the construction industry."

The expanded P&A employs 100 attorneys in nine offices located in New York, New Jersey, Florida, California, Washington, D.C. and Chicago. It also operates an office in London through a joint venture with Fenwick Elliott Solicitors. Currently headquartered at 546 Fifth Avenue in New York, P&A has begun a search for larger space in Manhattan to accommodate its growth.
