Boutique New York construction firm Zetlin & De Chiara LLP acts for developers, owners, architects, engineers, construction managers and contractors. Founding partners Michael Zetlin and Michael De Chiara are 'superb litigators' and 'deliver results'; De Chiara recently represented Handel Architects and DeSimone Consulting Engineers in a high-profile construction dispute relating to the Millennium Tower in San Francisco. Issues with the tower are highly publicized, and the firm represents the clients in multiple actions totaling over $100m. The team includes 'excellent' managing partner Michael Vardaro, who is 'outstanding in his representation of clients and his knowledge of the law', in addition to of counsel Louis Dennis and associate Anthony Riverso. Vardaro also advised Shop Architects as one of the primary contractors on a new $1bn inner city mixed-use development project in Detroit. James Terry, who is 'extremely good at juggling a busy practice', was part of the team negotiating and drafting construction and lease agreements for the conversion of the former Bayview Women's Correctional Facility to a social services facility. He was supported by Carol Patterson, seen by some as 'one of the leaders in construction law'. Terry, as well as associates Richard Kalinowski and Chengdong Xing, was also part of a team led by Zetlin that represented a national real estate developer in disputes connected to the renovation of a transportation facility in Manhattan. Also highly recommended are senior associate Joeann Walker and Raymond Mellon, who has 'developed strong credentials with the design community', and Bill Chimos, Jaimee Nardiello and associate Roy Schwartz, who are 'all excellent and provide great value for their services'.
