The group is jointly chaired by Anthony Meagher, who focuses primarily on construction disputes, and Robert Crewdson, who takes the lead on high-end transactional matters and also handles litigation. Meagher is based in Maryland, while Crewdson is in Atlanta alongside Brian Fielden, who is also recommended.
