MORRISTOWN, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/14 -- Becker & Poliakoff has expanded its construction litigation practice in New Jersey with the addition of attorney Matthew Meyers to its Morristown office.
Mr. Meyers specializes in commercial litigation, with an emphasis on complex construction defects and real estate disputes. In such cases, he has recovered nearly $50 million in claims on behalf of New Jersey condominium associations in the last five years, including the successful settlement of a contentious waterfront controversy in Northern New Jersey.
Mr. Meyers has been recognized numerous times by Thompson Reuters' SuperLawyers, which lists lawyers who have achieved a high degree of professional achievement. He was honored in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 editions with "Top Lawyers in New Jersey" in the area of construction litigation.
He also frequently lectures on construction defect litigation issues to various organizations, including the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education, the Associations of Owners and Developers, the National Business Institute, and the Community Associations Institute - New Jersey Chapter.
"This is an exciting move for me," said Mr. Meyers. "I was attracted to Becker by the firm's depth of construction litigation talent and the additional resources available for these claims. My new firm will not only enhance my practice but will elevate the level of services I provide to clients, which has always been my top priority."
"Matthew brings a wealth of talent and experience to our expanding Community Association practice in New Jersey," stated J. David Ramsey, director of Becker & Poliakoff's New Jersey Community Association practice. "He is a proven talent with a track record of successfully representing claimants confronting potentially ruinous construction claims, a major issue for many of our community associations. We now have added resources to further develop this practice."
Becker & Poliakoff already boasts one of the nation's most respected construction litigation teams, headed by Steven B. Lesser, who is also the Chair of the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry. Mr. Lesser's group has a reputation for excellence in residential and commercial construction matters, with a concentration on the representation of condominium associations in construction defect claims.
Mr. Lesser commented, "Matthew's background and experience measures up to the rigorous standards we have set for our construction attorneys, and we intend to support the prosecution of these construction claims to the fullest extent possible. Matthew's addition to the team is a part of our plan to expand the construction practice regionally while maintaining the high level of expertise and service our clients have enjoyed for over 40 years."
Mr. Meyers is a graduate of Rutgers University where he received his B.A. in Economics. He received his J.D. from the New York School of Law and is admitted to practice before and is a member of the New Jersey Bar.
