Cohen Seglias has a significant presence in the construction industry representing construction and construction industry-related businesses. Over the past 30 years, they have grown from a three-attorney practice to one of the largest construction practices on the East Coast that is ranked sixth among Construction Executive’s “Top 50 Construction Law Firms for 2020.” With more than 50 full-time construction attorneys, the firm represents more than 1,000 clients in the industry, including managers, general contractors, suppliers, design professionals, and a wide range of specialty subcontractors.
Cohen Seglias’ record of success comes from their “boots to the ground” experience, and they achieve results by speaking the same language as their clients. Prior to practicing law, many of their attorneys worked in the construction industry and a number hold degrees in construction-related fields such as architecture and engineering. They continue their involvement in the industry through leadership positions in many local, regional, and national construction trade organizations.
They believe that the client’s problems are their problems. They work hard to understand their clients’ businesses, listen to client concerns, and develop solutions that make both business and legal sense.
Edward Seglias is a Partner in the Construction Practice and is Vice President of the firm, dividing his time between the Philadelphia, Delaware, and Washington, DC offices.
