ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION DEFENSE PRACTICE AT LOIS
Rasul leads the construction practice at the firm and represents a wide array of clients in the defense of workers' compensation claims before the New York Workers' Compensation Board, including construction contractors, general contractors, project owners, developers, architects, engineers and other professionals in all aspects of construction litigation.
LOIS is consistently regarded as a Firm that fights for construction clients with an unmatched track record.
