National construction law firm Peckar & Abramson, P.C. (P&A) is pleased to announce The Legal 500 United States has once again ranked P&A as a Tier One Firm in Construction Law. The publication named Co-Founding Partner Robert S. Peckar to the “Hall of Fame”, and Washington, DC Managing Partner Michael A. Branca and Partner Ronald Helmuth as “Leading Lawyers.” Firm Chair, Steven M. Charney, Texas Co-Managing Partner, Matthew S.C. Moore, New York Co-Managing Partner, Paul Monte, and Firm Vice Chair, Stephen H. Reisman, were recognized as “Recommended Lawyers.”
According to the publication, to be considered eligible for the “Hall of Fame,” lawyers must be widely regarded as being at the very top of the profession, and to have been consistently ranked as leading individuals by The Legal 500 for a number of years. It also states that “Leading Lawyers” are defined as true market leaders, with long-established reputations in their sector, lead roles in multiple recent significant matters, and exceptional, widespread recognition and endorsement from peers in the market and clients alike.
This is the eighth consecutive year, since its inauguration in 2014, that The Legal 500 United States has named P&A a Top Tier Firm in Construction Law. A testimonial received by The Legal 500 United States said, “The Peckar Team is a consummate group of professionals. They offer sound counsel and are careful not to allow legal strategy to override sound business decision making. I consider them an invaluable resource for any matter that remotely appears to need a legal perspective.”
Firm Chair, Steven M. Charney, commented, “We are honored to receive these recognitions from The Legal 500 United States. They are not only a direct reflection of P&A’s superior client service, but our long-standing partnership with the construction and infrastructure industry, nationally and internationally.”
According to The Legal 500, the publication “has been analyzing the capabilities of law firms across the world, with a comprehensive research program revised and updated every year to bring the most up-to-date vision of the global legal market.” It states that it “assesses the strengths of law firms in over 150 jurisdictions using ‘feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers, and a team of researchers who have unrivalled experience in the legal market.’” The Legal 500 rankings can be viewed here.
