Development and Environmental Litigation in Connection With Municipal Courthouse Project
Hodgson Russ served as counsel to a New York State county in conjunction with the development of a new municipal courthouse facility. This project took advantage of statutory modifications exempting public construction projects with project labor agreements from the multiple prime contractor requirements of the Wicks Law. This structure enabled the project to come in on time and below budget. We also served as State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) counsel for this project and successfully defended the county in litigation brought on environmental and state law grounds.
