Zetlin & De Chiara LLP

Boutique construction firm Zetlin & De Chiara LLP is based in New York and led by managing partner Michael Vardaro and co-founders Michael Zetlin and Michael De Chiara. Traditionally the firm has represented architects and engineers in contracts and disputes, but more recently the client base has expanded to include major institutions, large developers and contractors, including power companies, schools and real estate developers. The ten-partner team works on PPP projects, both on the front end and in dispute resolution, and is currently acting for a real estate developer in arbitration concerning delay claims on a renovation project. Another standout matter was representing a global engineering firm in the contractual negotiations for the construction of a $550m state-of-the-art campus. Lina Telese left to practice in-house at engineering firm Jaros Baum & Bolles.
