Our Focus

At Rabinowitz, Galina & Rosen, we focus on the legal issues that are critical to the contractor (our client) in the New York metropolitan area.

Whether it is a public or private construction project, today's building environment presents numerous unique and challenging issues.

The issues may start even before submission of the bid with pre-qualification status, contract duration, subcontractor retention requirements, and what might be lurking in the contract's general conditions .

As any experienced contractor knows, getting the contract is just the beginning. To be successful, you must be ready to confront issues such as scheduling, change order requests, and the applicable labor laws.

General Counsel Approach

Our firm can guide you through contractor qualification; submission of Vendex applications; union CBA, and PLA issues; maintenance of compliant payroll and sign in/sign out records; documentation of Change Orders ; the importance of a contract's notice requirements; and the significance of sub-contractors' compliance and secondary liability.

The Contract

Whether we are drafting an agreement or giving advice about the complex provisions of a multi-contractor public construction project, our firm has the experience to guide you from contract signing through a claim process in a practical and cost effective manner.
