Peckar & Abramson, P.C. (P&A) is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized by Chambers USA at the Band 1 level nationwide in the areas of “Construction Law” and “Government Contracts: Highly Regarded.” P&A stands alone in its distinction of being named a Band 1 firm in “Construction Law” nationally, and has been named in the position every year since Chambers USA began awarding the recognition.

Each of P&A’s offices in New York, New Jersey, Washington, DC, Texas, and Florida were ranked Band 1 in Construction Law, and the Firm’s California practice was also highly rated.

Additionally, 25 of P&A’s construction lawyers were named as leading construction lawyers in their respective jurisdictions – more than any other construction law practice in the country. This recognition reflects the addition of two newly ranked P&A attorneys from the prior year.

Peckar & Abramson has continuously achieved national recognition for its successes in representing members of the construction industry, both domestically and internationally, as demonstrated by its consistent Chambers USA rankings.

Among the client comments to Chambers USA about the firm, one stated, “They are an immensely talented firm that earns the respect and trust of their opponents and their clients on all aspects of construction and construction litigation.” Another source stated, “Peckar & Abramson is a top-notch construction practice and our go-to firm for all government contracting work; we have not run into more knowledgeable, efficient or responsive lawyers,” and another said, “Their counsel is invaluable and keeps the team focused on the contractual parameters of each issue.”

“These rankings exemplify P&A’s position as a leading construction firm with exceptional legal acumen and a practical approach to the law,” said P&A Chair Steven M. Charney. He continued, “The recognized strength of our practice and lawyers is a testament to our Results First® focus toward clients and our unwavering dedication to the construction industry.”

Michael A. Branca, co-managing partner of Peckar & Abramson’s Washington, D.C. office, commented, “We are honored that Chambers has recognized the firm’s government contracts team for the second consecutive year. The Band 1 ranking reflects our continuous efforts to provide high-quality service across several firm offices.”
