“I’ve known and respected the lawyers at Schiff Hardin and its Construction Law Group as well as Mazur Carp for a long time. Quite frankly, their combination 16 months ago caught my attention and I knew something special had just happened at the construction bar. Schiff Hardin entered at the top of the New York construction market when it combined with Mazur Carp. When Ken Roberts, the Construction Law Chairman who also serves on the firm’s executive committee, approached me, I knew that I wanted to move my practice to Schiff Hardin.”

The Construction Law Chair, Kenneth M. Roberts, said: “The team we’ve assembled at Schiff Hardin looks and acts unlike every other construction practice: our team is comprised of the most seasoned attorneys, with the experience to handle the entire range of complex issues faced by major building and infrastructure projects – from  transactions, project finance, litigation, and alternative dispute resolution to large contract procurement, project controls and field-based project management – anywhere  in our national platform, as well as overseas. And we continue to have conversations with attorneys who can deliver world class client service and contribute to our firm’s growth.”
