Construction and Energy Practices Honored With National Awards

Law360 has named two Troutman Pepper practices among its Practice Groups of the Year for 2021. The firm achieved the national recognition for both its Construction and Energy practices. According to Law360, 91 firms submitted nearly 900 nominations for the awards, which “honor the law firms behind the litigation wins and major deals that resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year.”

Construction Group of the Year

“We are excited to be recognized nationally for our work in the construction space,” said Mike Subak, who leads the firm’s Construction Practice Group. “Our team advises industry leaders on both their largest projects as well as their day-to-day details, and the work is incredibly rewarding.”

“The recognition is really a nod to the remarkable projects our clients are engaged in, and we are honored to partner with them to help make their visions realities,” said Partner Aaron Abraham, who last year was recognized by Law360 as a Construction MVP of the Year. Partner Luke Eaton also was recognized in 2021 by Law360 as a Construction Rising Star.

Troutman Pepper’s Construction Practice Group counsels clients on some of the largest, most sophisticated construction projects in the world and is among the leading firms in total number of complex disputes tried and won in federal and state courts nationwide and arbitration forums domestic and international. The practice has been nationally recognized by Chambers and Partners, U.S. News: Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms,” and local publications across the country.

“We are proud to be recognized by Law360 as one of the top energy law practices in the country,” said Amie Colby, a partner in the firm’s Energy Practice Group and chair of its Regulatory and Finance Department. “The recognition highlights Troutman Pepper’s unrelenting commitment to provide the best service to our energy clients and beyond.”
