Becker & Poliakoff Construction Law Practice Receives Top Ranking in 2014 Chambers USA Directory

FT. LAUDERDALE, June 3, 2014 – Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, one of the legal industry’s most preeminent rankings directories, has chosen Becker & Poliakoff’s Construction Law Practice Group and its team leader attorney Steven Lesser for inclusion in its 2014 edition.

The annual guide selects attorneys and practices for inclusion based on thousands of in-depth interviews with randomly selected attorneys, clients and businesses. Attorneys, practice areas and firms are ranked by placement in “bands,” with Band 1 being the highest placement.

Becker & Poliakoff was one of only four firms in Florida receiving top ranking in Band 1 for its construction law practice. Chambers also ranked attorney Steven Lesser in Band 1 based on his individual construction expertise and performance.

Calling it a “highly regarded team,” the directory said Becker & Poliakoff’s Construction Law Practice is “renowned for its condominium association work and expertise in representing owners, developers and contractors.” The listing also cited the practice group’s “Impressive involvement in public-private partnership matters, and… experience in construction defect claims.”

In addition to Mr. Lesser, attorneys Lee Weintraub and Sanjay Kurian were also cited as “Notable Practitioners” in the firm’s highly rated Construction Law Practice Group. It is the 11th consecutive year that the firm and its construction layers have been recognized by Chambers USA.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious recognition,” said Steven Lesser. “It is very rewarding to be recognized by our clients and colleagues for the success of our work.”

Chambers USA covers all the states in the United States. In every state it ranks the leading law firms in as many as 45 different practice areas.
