Experience

Josh Oberman has been practicing law for over twenty years. He provides holistic legal advice to contractors, developers, and high net-worth homeowners throughout the New York Metropolitan Area and Long Island’s East end.

Josh focuses on achieving the most practical and efficient solutions for his clients who include some of the City’s largest trade contractors and developers. Approaching problems holistically, he works with clients’ CPA’s and Insurance/Surety professionals, to make sure their needs are addressed from all angles.

A seasoned and creative deal maker, he is also a tenacious litigator who litigates cases through trial when necessary. He has deep expertise in nearly all aspects of private and public construction and negotiating and litigating Access Agreements under New York Real Property Law 881. He has shepherded clients through commercial disputes, litigation with sureties, union negotiations and conflicts, as well as insolvency.

Working in tandem with the Firm’s corporate department, Josh ensures that his clients achieve the right corporate structure. He also works extensively with the Firm’s trusts and estates department to help clients implement asset preservation strategies.

A dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker, Josh combines his construction law expertise with extensive knowledge of the local community both in the City and on the East End.

He is a Board Member of the New York City Chapter of the Construction Financial Management Association, and a past the President of the New York City Surety Association.
