Adams and Reese Partner Roscoe Green had his article, “Beware the Higher Risks that Align with 2023 Opportunities,” published in Engineering News-Record’s “ABA Forum on Construction Law” special section.
“Given the influx of opportunity in infrastructure and energy projects in 2023, thanks to federal funding, now is the time to asses existing and emerging risks to protect profits,” wrote Green.
Green mentioned three key areas to consider before taking on the next project: proper insurance coverage, indemnity obligations, and risk of loss. “The key to protecting your profits on the project will be how effectively and swiftly those disputes are decided. When reviewing your contract, it is critical to consider who will be involved and how those disputes will be decided.”
Green was among ENR Southeast’s 2023 “Top Young Professionals,” recognizing emerging business leaders for their professional and civic contributions to the construction industry.
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 that is also one of the largest construction practices in the country, serving clients in 21 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.
In 2006, Green earned his B.S. in Construction Engineering from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (Florida A&M). Following a career in the construction industry, he earned his J.D. from Florida Coastal School of Law in 2014.
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.”
