Robert S Peckar, Peckar & Abramson PC

Robert S Peckar is the founding partner of Peckar & Abramson and a recognised leader of the construction bar. Having spent the first half of his career successfully litigating complex construction cases, he has since concentrated his efforts in guiding clients to the resolution of complex project disputes through creative solutions, including the use of ADR processes of which he is one of the leading advocates. In recent years, Mr Peckar has dedicated a significant portion of his practice to issues confronting complex international construction projects, including counseling global clients on policies and practices to combat corruption and operate in accordance with domestic and international corporate integrity laws.

Mr Peckar has devoted his career to serving the construction industry and bar. He regularly makes presentations to major industry and bar groups domestically and internationally. He has served as general counsel to major construction industry organisations, and is a fellow of the American College of Construction Lawyers where he presently serves as chair of the international law committee. Mr Peckar has written many articles on construction law, mediation of global arbitration disputes and corporate integrity issues. He is the contributing author of several construction law textbooks. Mr Peckar's prominence in construction law has led to glowing praise from clients and colleagues alike. Chambers USA - America's Leading Lawyers for Business has stated he is 'undoubtedly one of the sector's super-lawyers', 'super-intelligent, creative and business-oriented', and on 'everyone's shortlist' for dispute resolution. Mr Peckar has been named as the leading construction lawyer in the world by Who's Who Legal from 2006 to 2014.

Mr Peckar graduated from Rutgers College and Columbia Law School.
