  • the most successful track record representing companies seeking payment for work at the World Trade Center disaster;
  • the dismissal of the first environmental criminal prosecutions brought by Robert Kennedy, Jr. and the Brooklyn DA;
  • the representation of the region’s heavy trucking industry in persuading the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to maintain access to the Throgs Neck Bridge;
  • persuading one of the largest NYC construction unions to permit some of its work in NYC to be done by non-NYC unions;
  • achieving the most seminal decision in liquor licensing in recent years preventing the closure of wineries;
  • obtaining the written promise of a national labor union to not pursue double breasting or withholding liability.
