FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – June 23, 2016 – The 2016 Chambers USA Guide includes three Florida attorneys from law firm Becker & Poliakoff and also ranks the firm’s Florida Construction Law and Litigation Practice Group in Band 1.
According to its website, Chambers and Partners, publisher of the annual guide, selects attorneys and practices for inclusion based on thousands of interviews with practicing lawyers and clients worldwide. Attorneys, practice areas and firms are ranked by placement in “bands,” with Band 1 being the highest placement.
Becker & Poliakoff attorneys ranked in Florida and their practice groups include:
Steven B. Lesser, Band 1: Shareholder and Chair of Construction Law and Litigation Practice Group. Chambers has published quotes from his peers describing Lesser as “one of the best construction lawyers, not just in the state but in the country.”
Lee A. Weintraub, Band 2: Shareholder, Chair of Public-Private Practice Group and Vice-Chair of Construction Law and Litigation Practice Group. Chambers has published quotes from his peers describing Weintraub as having “the ability to cover all the aspects of construction across the board, whether it’s representation for litigation or drafting contracts.”
Sanjay Kurian, Band 3: Shareholder in the Construction Law and Litigation Practice Group. Chambers has published quotes from a source observing “he clearly has an enthusiasm for the practice.”
A key differentiator of the firm’s Florida Construction Law and Litigation Practice Group is that every attorney eligible for board certification in construction law is board-certified. Every year, the entire practice group undergoes internal educational sessions to ensure every attorney remains on the leading edge of the current case law, legislation and rule-making, as well as the current state of the construction law field in Florida.
“We are exceptionally proud of our Florida Construction Law and Litigation Practice Group’s continued recognition in Chambers and in many other legal directories for its commitment to the highest quality of legal professionalism and client service,” said Gary C. Rosen, managing partner of the firm. “We congratulate the practice group and its attorneys for this achievement and look forward to their continued successes in leading the construction law field in Florida.”
