Last Updated: May 8 2007

NEW YORK (May 4, 2007)—The American Bar Association Forum on the Construction Industry has chosen New York-based Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner LLP partner Robbie MacPherson to serve as Chair Elect for the coming one-year term. The Forum is the world's largest organization for construction lawyers.

Mr. MacPherson has served the ABA Construction Forum for over a decade, first as a rank-and-file member, then rising to Division Chair, Program Chair, Governing Committee member, and, most recently, Chair of the Alternative CLE Committee.

"We're all tremendously proud of Robbie," said John Heisse, chair of Thelen's Construction and Government Construction Department. "He is extremely well respected as a leader within the ABA, and this nomination is testimony to that. This reflects well on the firm, as a whole, and our New York construction practice, in particular."

Mr. MacPherson's nomination became official following a voice vote at the Forum's Annual Meeting in April 2007. Once formally elected, he will commence his one-year term as Chair Elect in August 2007, then serve as Chair for a full year, and then as Immediate Past Chair during the year following.

Thelen's involvement with the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry is long and deep. Currently, Washington, DC managing partner Andy Ness also serves on the Forum's Governing Committee. Additionally, New York Construction partner Jeffrey Cruz was recently named Editor of the Forum's newsletter, Under Construction. Previously, Jeff co-authored "Hard Hat Case Notes," a column in the Forum's other major publication, The Construction Lawyer, for which Washington, DC partner John Ralls serves as Assistant Editor.

Thelen has a long history as a leading Construction law firm. In 2007, the firm has been named "Global Construction Law Firm of the Year" by Who's Who Legal.
