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.
