Chambers USA’s 2017 Guide recognized VLP’s construction practice, observing that VLP is “[a]lso renowned for work across a broad range of litigation matters and developing an increasing expertise in technology related to transportation facilities.”  Chambers quoted sources as noting “the firm’s impressive bench strength, saying: They have a really good depth of talent. All the way from senior partner through junior partners to the associates, everyone I have dealt with has been best of class.’

Joe Lawrence is referred to as “one of the best lawyers in town,” who offers “a broad construction law practice encompassing matters such as contract and document preparation and complex litigation.”  Rob Vezina is described as “very professional, pleasant and skilled – particularly in the area of infrastructure,” with “a broad range of experience, including in P3 contracts and bid protests.”  Mike Piscitelli’s “strength in construction-related litigation, arbitration and mediation” is noted, along with sources’ agreement that he is “an outstanding lawyer.”
