Chambers USA Recognizes Becker’s Construction and Litigation Practices; Seven Attorneys in 2022 Edition

Becker is thrilled to announce that the firm and its attorneys have been recognized in the 2022 edition of Chambers USA, a prestigious annual guide of leading law firms and attorneys. Chambers’ sources describe the firm as a “formidable adversary” with a “strong presence across the state of Florida.”

This year, Becker once again received top recognition in Band 1 of the Florida Construction category, an honor it has received every year since the publication’s inaugural edition. Also notable is Becker’s inclusion in the “Highly Regarded” General Commercial Litigation category in Florida. The team is touted for its analysis which not only considers the law but also clients’ business goals and objectives.

Three Becker attorneys received the highest Band 1 recognition this year: Florida Construction Chair Steven B. Lesser is noted as “a lawyer with deep expertise and a unique combination of brains and practicality” and who “is able to get the job done well and protect his clients,” Construction Vice Chair Lee A. Weintraub is quoted as “knowledgeable and responsive to clients on all matters,” and New Jersey Financial Services Shareholder Paul H. Shur is cited as “knowledgeable, thorough, accurate and commercial” and that “the balance he has between business savviness and knowledge of the law allows us to get a deal done despite heavy negotiations.” In addition, Claramargaret Groover joins the Florida Construction rankings for the first time this year, with Chambers recognizing her for her notable expertise in construction-related insurance litigation.
