Introducing our E-Newsletter! We have transitioned Construction in Brief to an electronic newsletter. Please explore our articles on our website as we no longer send out printed copies. You can subscribe to our e-newsletter here.
We are excited to announce a new practice group, Consumer Protection & Regulatory Defense! You can read about this new group below. In this issue, we also cover the growing trend of “design-assist” in the construction industry and important factors to consider when faced with delay claims. In the Q&A with Marian Kornilowicz, you will gain insight into our Business Transactions Group and the services we provide our clients. Last but not least, the date for the 2019 Construction Executive Boot Camp has been set, so please take a look below and mark your calendars!
Joshua M. Deal joined the New York office as a construction associate. He represents owners, contractors, design-builders, and subcontractors on both private and public projects on matters including mechanics’ lien claims, payment and performance bond claims, delay claims, and construction defect claims.. Josh also represents property owners in the negotiation and drafting of construction license agreements with neighboring property owners and in related litigation under New York State’s Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law.
Before joining Cohen Seglias, Josh was an associate at a mid-sized defense firm in New York where he handled a broad array of matters including, commercial litigation, employment investigations and litigation, products liability, civil rights litigation, construction injury litigation, toxic torts, and railroad liability litigation.
Kelsey E. Riehle recently joined the Philadelphia office as a construction associate. As a litigator, she works closely with owners, contractors, subcontractors, and design professionals in all phases of the construction and dispute resolution process. Kelsey counsels her clients early on in projects to maximize their success and minimize risk. When disputes do arise, she employs a practical and thoughtful approach to resolving legal challenges.
In addition to her experience in the construction sector, Kelsey has defended clients in general liability, mass toxic tort, and products liability matters and litigated cases in federal and state court. She previously served as an adjunct professor of business law courses in North Carolina.
Paul Felipe Williamson joined the Washington, DC office earlier this year as a construction associate. He concentrates his practice in construction litigation and represents contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, owners, and other parties on both private and public projects.

Prior to joining Cohen Seglias, Paul was an attorney at an Am Law 100 firm, where his practice focused on resolving his clients’ complex commercial disputes in federal and state courts. Paul also has significant experience in managing complex, large scale, eDiscovery matters.
