Chambers USA Recognizes Becker’s Construction and Litigation Practices; Six Attorneys in 2023 Edition

Becker is thrilled to announce that the firm and its attorneys have been recognized in the 2023 edition of Chambers USA, a prestigious annual guide of leading law firms and attorneys. Chambers’ sources describe the firm as having a “diverse knowledge base” and a “strong presence across the state.”

This year, Becker once again received top recognition in Band 1 in the Construction category, an honor the practice has received every year since the publication’s inaugural edition. Also ranked as Highly Regarded (Band 3) is Becker’s General Commercial Litigation practice.

Three Becker attorneys received the highest Band 1 recognition this year: Florida Construction Chair Steven B. Lesser is noted as “indefatigable” and “will not rest until he finds the right answer,” Construction Vice Chair Lee A. Weintraub is noted as having, “top-notch skills and a straightforward approach,” and New Jersey Financial Services Shareholder Paul H. Shur is cited as, “one of the most knowledgeable attorneys in the market” and that “the balance he has between business savviness and knowledge of the law allows us to get a deal done despite heavy negotiations.”
