Glenn J. Fuerth Senior Counsel




Glenn Fuerth has extensive, national experience assisting architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors and property managers with virtually any potential legal issue that arises in the commercial construction industry. He has developed a particular concentration in crane liability and defect claims, including representing the crane owner in litigation arising from the 2008 crane collapse accidents at East 51st and East 91st streets in Manhattan.

Working with a small core of attorneys, Glenn provides clients with personalized attention based on their individual needs. He also has the ability to tap the firm’s nationwide resources to assist clients with construction-related matters across the country, from Florida to Illinois to Oregon. In emergency situations, Glenn has mobilized firm-managed rapid response teams to be on site within hours of an accident.

Areas of Focus

In his litigation practice, Glenn has prosecuted or defended numerous delay damage claims, design claims, lien actions, change order claims, injured worker claims and construction bond/surety claims arising from the construction of office, residential and institutional properties. This work has included significant litigation that permits architects to seek damages for economic losses. He has represented clients at trial in state and federal courts nationwide, as well as at arbitrations and mediations.

Glenn also represents clients in the negotiation of contracts between the various parties on a construction project, including owners, contractors, subcontractors, design professionals and consultants.

In addition, Glenn has managed Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance audits on a national level, and has defended clients against safety and code violation citations by OSHA and the New York City Department of Buildings.

Glenn has addressed architects and engineers at CLE programs covering the New York Rules of Professional Discipline and other topics, and recently gave a presentation on investigating catastrophic construction accidents at a Defense Research Institute seminar.
