We could not have done it without our clients. When contacted by Chambers researchers about their experience working with Cohen Seglias, clients and market sources said:
- “They are conscientious and responsive when I have questions and they tell me what I need. They always say ‘here’s what you need to know’. They have been good to us; so far we’re batting a thousand with them.”
- The firm has an “outstanding presence in the market.”
The Cohen Seglias Construction Group is described as robust with expertise in litigation and complex contract negotiations. The Group is noted for representing a range of clients in the construction industry, including electrical, mechanical and concrete subcontractors. Chambers USA noted that the team is well versed in providing counsel on bid protests and bid withdrawals, as well as issues concerning government procurement and the Miller Act.
Roy Cohen continues to the be recognized as a leader in construction and is described as an acknowledged expert in construction litigation, mediation, and arbitration. He acts for a varied body of clients and has a particularly strong reputation for his work on behalf of contractors in the electrical space.

Marc Furman comes highly recommended for his labor law practice.
