Zetlin & De Chiara LLP Partner Jaimee Nardiello Elected President of CREW New York

February 2018

New York, NY (January 30, 2018) -  Zetlin and De Chiara LLP congratulates Partner Jaimee Nardiello on being elected 2018 President of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) New York, the region’s leading advocacy organization for professional women in real estate. Jaimee has been a member of CREW since 2012, serving on its special events and programs committees and as its President-Elect during 2017.

“The third Zetlin & De Chiara partner to serve in this capacity, Jaimee is a prime example of the firm’s legacy of supporting, mentoring and empowering women in the real estate and construction industry,” said Michael Vardaro, Managing Partner, Zetlin & De Chiara LLP. 

At Zetlin & De Chiara, Ms. Nardiello focuses her law practice on protecting the rights of design professionals, contractors, owners and other members of the industry in litigation, standing out in a male-dominated industry.  She has successfully defended clients against several hundred million dollars in claims--winning dismissals, mitigating liability, and preserving reputations. The latest Guide to Federal Government Construction Contracts, published by The American Bar Association (ABA), features a chapter by Ms. Nardiello on the complexities of architect-engineer (A-E) contracting. She is the Immediate Past Chair of the Design Division of the American Bar Association Forum on Construction Law.

Her professional accolades are many, including being named a New York Metro Super Lawyer (2013-2017), after being a New York Super Lawyers Rising Star (2011 and 2012).  Who’s Who Legal counts her among the country’s leading lawyers in construction.  This past year, she was again recognized by the Women’s Builders Council for her accomplishments.   Most recently, she was included in Crain’s inaugural list of Leading Women Lawyers in New York City
