Goldberg Segalla Partner Ellen Greiper Seated as Newest PWC Board Member March 16, 2015

Goldberg Segalla is pleased to announce that Ellen H. Greiper, a partner in the firm's Construction and General Liability Practice Groups, was recently appointed by Professional Women in Construction (PWC) to serve on the Board of Directors of its New York Chapter, the organization’s founding and largest arm. Ellen was formally introduced as its newest board member at PWC’s “Meet the Construction Chiefs” event at the end of February, an annual gathering which draws top construction and real estate professionals in both the public and private sectors. She joins a group that includes owners and senior management of national construction firms.

As an attorney on the New York Chapter’s Board of Directors, Ellen plans to use her position as a medium for educating PWC’s 1,000-strong membership on key legal issues impacting the industry. In addition, she hopes to help create a forum for women in the construction industry, providing professional development, educational opportunities, and a venue for networking. Along with its strong presence in New York, PWC also has chapters throughout the Northeast and in South Florida, serving a constituency of about 20,000. “This is an organization that counts among its membership the chieftains of the industry,” Ellen said. “It’s an honor to have been asked to contribute in such a meaningful way.”

At Goldberg Segalla, Ellen uses her two decades of experience defending complex multi-party construction defect cases in the state and federal courts of New York to help clients reach quick resolution of their legal matters. An appointed arbitrator and mediator, she also is a frequent speaker and author on emerging topics in the general liability and construction arenas. In addition, Ellen is the executive editor of Goldberg Segalla’s Labor Law Update, which examines the latest developments regarding New York’s Labor Law and construction site accidents.  She is also a contributing editor to the New York State Bar Association’s Construction Site Personal Injury Litigation treatise.
