Historic New York City Law Firm

Our firm was established in 1919 by Max E. Greenberg, long regarded as the “Dean” of construction law. Our lawyers began focusing on construction disputes during the 1930s and today concentrate primarily on construction law and related areas. We have handled some of the largest construction projects in the Northeast, as well as providing smaller-scale developers, contractors, subcontractors and design professionals with the efficient legal representation they need.


Our construction law practice serves clients in all areas of construction law, from drafting contracts to resolving complex construction disputes. We also provide representation and counsel in real estate matters so that our clients can acquire building sites and financing with the unique insight of our legal professionals.


Our lawyers have many years of legal experience — three of our partners alone bring more than 100 years of combined experience to the practice of construction law. This depth allows us to provide creative solutions that match our clients’ goals. We have a real understanding of the business operations of our clients and understand and appreciate the challenges they face and the constraints under which they operate.

Service Area

Although we represent clients throughout the United States and abroad, our practice predominantly serves clients in the greater New York region. Our attorneys are admitted to practice in New York and New Jersey and are able to associate with attorneys in other jurisdictions in order to best represent our clients.
