Allen Ross wins the case for top construction lawyer 2005.

Ross & Cohen, LLP announced that Allen Ross, co-founder and managing partner, has been named to the International Who's Who of Construction Lawyers 2005, a prestigious listing of construction attorneys compiled by Law Business Research Ltd. and designed to assist owners, contractors and developers in selecting qualified legal counsel for their construction projects.

The publication notes, "Our research has revealed 369 lawyers in 31 jurisdictions who can truly be considered leaders in the field of construction law."

The International "Who's Who of Construction Lawyers" is a subset of "Who's Who Legal," which includes an assessment of the foremost legal practitioners in over 20 distinct areas of the international legal marketplace. The "Who's Who" directory is designed as a service to reduce the short-term costs incurred in finding a lawyer, but more significantly, to minimize the expense and risk of receiving poor legal counsel.

Allen Ross will be listed on as part of the site's comprehensive online directory, as well as in the directory's print volume.

Allen Ross founded Ross & Cohen in 1978 with Frederick Cohen, and has helped lead the firm to become one of the foremost New York-based firms specializing in construction and real estate law.

Mr. Ross earned his J.D. from New York University School of Law and a B.A. from Cornell University.

He is a member of the New York State Bar Association and is admitted to practice in all New York State Courts, the U.S. District Court Southern District of New York, the U.S. Court of Appeals, 1st and 2nd Circuit, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the U.S. Court of Appeals Federal Circuit.

In addition to his traditional legal work, he has developed a career in alternative dispute resolution in the construction industry, earning success as an arbitrator, mediator and dispute review board chair.

Ross is active in a number of charitable organizations and serves as a vice president for the New York region of the Jewish National Fund.
