Peckar & Abramson, P.C.

Construction specialist Peckar & Abramson, P.C. 'excels at handling disputes involving complex issues related to delay and disruption' and is considered by some to be 'the premier construction boutique firm in the country'. It has offices across the US, and primarily works with general contractors and construction managers on transactional and contentious matters. The team has undergone a period of relative transformation recently, with three new arrivals, namely Los Angeles-based Ronald Helmuth, previously head of his own firm, Barry Brooks in Dallas from McGuire, Craddock & Strother, P.C., and Austin-based Karla Pascarella from Isolux Corsan. Helmuth recently acted for a joint venture comprised of two national contractors in contract negotiations for a new major airport terminal. Supported by New York-based chairman Steven Charney and Los Angeles-based Alex Baghdassarian, Helmuth also represented the client in multiple claims associated with the project. In another highlight, New York-based Gregory Chertoff led a team defending significant claims brought against a major construction company for alleged negligence related to floodwater damage. Washington DC-based Christopher Sweeney, who was recently promoted to senior counsel, is noted for his litigation expertise. Founding partner Robert Peckar, who is based in New York, is another key contact.
