About LePatner

Founded in 1980, LePatner & Associates LLP is a New York City-based construction law firm and one of the nation’s foremost construction advisors providing comprehensive legal, business advisory, project management, and investigative services to corporations, real estate developers and investors, healthcare and educational institutions, and non-profit organizations as well as design professionals. LePatner specializes in solving complex challenges and disputes in the real estate and construction industries. Its personnel consist of attorneys and construction professionals with diverse design, real estate and construction-oriented backgrounds.

During its 35+ year history, the firm has perfected an approach vastly different from the typical construction attorney. Clients planning and building significant capital projects retain LePatner because they know that LePatner helps them make the critical strategic decisions at the outset and then carry them through to completion. Clients value LePatner’s sophisticated understanding of how the construction, real estate and design industries truly work and their unique LePatner C3 methodology that mitigates and prevents cost overruns and delays.

While cost overruns of 20, 30, 50 percent or more plague most construction projects, LePatner ensures that your project does not face these disastrous consequences.

“A successful construction project results from an interlocking set of agreements that supports a master strategy derived from the business goals driving the project. Like the physical structure of a building, such a framework not only provides strength and protection, but shapes the outcome of the entire project.”
