PHILADELPHIA, January 27, 2020 — Cozen O’Connor has been named Law360 2019 Construction Group of the Year. This award honors the law firms behind the litigation wins and major deals that resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year. The group’s recent work securing a key victory for nonunion highway construction labor in a battle with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation as well as leading litigation for Energy Transfer Partners on the controversial Mariner East 2 Pipeline in Pennsylvania helped earn the firm a spot.
Ray DeLuca, vice chair of the Construction Group, credits the ability to call on other resources at Cozen O’Connor a huge part of their success, specifically referring to helping terminate a nine-figure contract with a pipeline contractor in the midst of bankruptcy. “We were able to step in and seamlessly represent the client with the complex construction issues where they intersected with the complex bankruptcy issues,” he said. “That’s the strength of having a full-service firm behind you.” In the award program's 10th year, the Practice Groups of the Year hailed from 85 law firms including Dechert, Morgan Lewis, and Hogan Lovells.
Along with Construction, the firm has also been named to Law360’s 2019 Cannabis Practice Group on the year.
