Cohen’s practice includes both private sector projects and government contracts. His construction cases span the full range of construction disputes, and he has litigated, for example, complex delay and disruption claims and their attendant critical path scheduling analysis, acceleration claims, disputed changes, construction defects, and mechanic’s liens. These cases involved industrial, commercial, and residential projects.
Increasingly, Cohen has been putting his 39 years of experience to use as a mediator of construction disputes. In addition, he has been on the American Arbitration Association panel of arbitrators for 25 years and has served as both sole arbitrator and as a member of three-person arbitration panels.
