Greetings from the Editorial Team at Construction in Brief! We hope you had an enjoyable summer. We are gearing up for an exciting Fall with the opening of our new office in New York. Contractors working on residential projects in New Jersey should not miss the article, “New Jersey Courts Extend the Life of Liability for Condo Contractors”, and “Not So Fast! My Oil and Gas Lease Does What?” is a cautionary must-read for landowners involved in oil and gas leases.
We hope you will find some useful information in Volume 3 of Construction in Brief. Please let us know if there is any way we can assist you.
Please join us in welcoming Scott Jeffreys, who joins the Firm as Controller. With over thirty years of experience in financial management, analysis and reporting, planning, and budgeting, Scott is responsible for the management and direction of the Firm’s accounting team. Prior to joining Cohen Seglias, he worked as a business and operations consultant.
Please also welcome Joshua A. Brand, who joins the Firm as an Associate in the Labor & Employment Group in Philadelphia. A former Assistant City Solicitor in the Labor and Employment Unit of the City of Philadelphia Law Department, Joshua brings substantial employment litigation and labor experience. He represents clients before administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Labor, and Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission. He also provides counseling to businesses on employment-related issues, including employee leave, discipline, and other personnel policies.
