The firm is currently representing Suffolk County in connection with a lawsuit relating to the construction and expansion of the Bergen Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. The County and the construction contractors claim millions of dollars in damages for extensive delays of various projects at the facility. The firm also represents the County in connection with a lawsuit contending that the County’s amendment of Section A18-3(G) of the County Code is unconstitutional. That section relates to fees for tax map verifications and the recording of various land-related documents. The lower court dismissed the action, holding those legislative amendments authorized the County’s fees, and the case is currently on appeal.
Counsel for the firm was previously appointed Special Construction Litigation Counsel for the Nassau County Aquatic Center and has lectured and written articles on various topics, including mechanic’s liens, architect obligations, legislative updates in the construction industry, and subcontractor payment issues.
