Leni Cummins, Jennifer Miller, Rachel Soloman, and Anthony Riverso discuss the complexities surrounding the recent amendments to Section 756-a and Section 756-c.

Anthony is a construction lawyer with experience drafting and negotiating construction agreements and representing clients in litigation and alternative dispute resolution.

When drafting, evaluating, and negotiating construction agreements, such as general contractor agreements, architect and engineer agreements, design/build agreements, trade contracts and subcontracts, and domestic and international purchase orders, Anthony keeps a keen eye on areas of liability and risk. His clients benefit from his in-depth analysis of insurance policies to determine coverage and chart the best course for resolving construction disputes regarding delays, mechanic's liens, defective work, change orders, warranty claims, default and termination, surety, and insurance issues. Should a case result in litigation, Anthony has experience drafting briefs, motions, interrogatories, discovery demands, and pleadings, arguing motions in court, and drafting and negotiating settlement agreements.

Prior to joining the firm, Anthony was an associate with an AmLaw 100 firm, where he gained valuable experience drafting and negotiating agreements and contracts and resolving disputes involving the construction of large-scale residential condominiums, hotels, retail projects, office and commercial buildings, and higher education projects.

Anthony earned his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law, where he was a symposium editor of the Fordham Environmental Law Review. He also holds an M.B.A. in finance from Fordham University and a B.A. from Pennsylvania State University.
