My legal knowledge across an array of practice areas including construction, real estate, and creditor’s rights has enabled me to represent clients’ interests through a broad-based service spectrum of risk analysis, risk mitigation, and litigation.
Benjamin Rachelson practices in construction, real estate, litigation, general business and contract review, secured lending and creditor bankruptcy.
Practicing law since 2007, Benjamin represents his construction clients in transactional matters ranging from review of vendor supply agreements to analysis of AIA (American Institute of Architects) construction contracts and related project delivery methods, such as design build and public-private partnership projects. Benjamin prepares and reviews contracts for construction company owners, general contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers.
