Adams and Reese Partner Roscoe Green is featured in “ENR’s 2023 Top 20 Under 40: Up Close” as Engineering News-Record interviewed the construction professional honorees who recently visited New Orleans for a conference and awards event.
In joining ENR’s seventh annual Top Young Professionals conference earlier this year, the magazine’s 2023 selected group of rising construction professionals weighed in on how industry should address key challenges, including implementing technology, climate change impacts, employee burnout, decarbonization, and workforce development.
“From a legal liability standpoint, burnout has become a huge topic on construction jobsites,” said Green in the article. “A lot of our claims are burnout. People working long hours, when combined with workforce issues, can create a litigious environment. Our claims involve simple mistakes on projects from burnout, and just not having the skill level that’s needed.”
ENR recently published an article by Green, “Beware the Higher Risks that Align with 2023 Opportunities.” In addition to being recognized among ENR’s national Top 20 Under 40 honorees, Green was selected for Southeast’s 2023 “Top Young Professionals.”
Green, a construction law attorney in the Tampa office, is one of the leading members of Adams and Reese’s nationally ranked construction law practice, serving clients in 20 cities in the south, southeast, and Washington, D.C. In addition to practicing law, Green is a former Florida Certified General Contractor, previously working with a construction management firm in commercial and institutional construction, giving him a foundation to now navigate the complex legal disputes that face his construction clients.
Green’s latest ENR honor joins previous distinctions by peers and clients among Florida Super Lawyers® Rising Stars; Florida Trend “Legal Elite Up & Comer”; Tampa Magazine “Top Lawyers in Construction Law”; and Chambers & Partners “Diversity & Inclusion Awards”, shortlisted for “Minority Lawyer of the Year.”
Green was named a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) Fellow for 2023, a professional development program that connects high-potential attorneys with leading general counsel, managing partners and their peers for mentoring and career guidance.
