NJSDA gets new outside counsel

The national law firm of Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott, LLC will serve as outside counsel to the New Jersey Schools Development Authority (“NJSDA”) in the areas of construction litigation, professional errors and omissions/cost recovery and real estate, including voluntary acquisitions, condemnations and general transactions. 

The predecessor firm of Sterns & Weinroth had served as outside counsel to NJSDA in these areas continuously since 2002, shortly after NJSDA’s predecessor, New Jersey Schools Construction Corporation, was formed.

Sterns and Weinroth merged with Eckert effective April 1, so the new, combined practice will continue to serve NJSDA.

Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott, LLC has more than 375 attorneys located in 14 offices throughout the United States, including Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, and Southpointe, Pa.; Boston; Washington, D.C.; Richmond, Va.; Wilmington, Del.; Newark and Trenton, N.J.; White Plains, N.Y.; Providence, R.I., Troy, Mich. and Charleston, W.Va.
