Glaser Weil Partner Peter Sheridan, Chair of the Firm’s Construction Law Practice Group, was named to the Irish Legal 100 for the fifth year in a row. He accepted his award in Washington D.C. on October 26, 2017 at a reception hosted at the home of the Irish Ambassador to the United States, Dan Mulhall. The Irish Legal 100 is published by the Irish Voice, and has been awarded to Irish American judges and lawyers since 2008. The criteria for this award is based on the accomplishments and distinguished service of the nominee to the law profession. Mr. Sheridan’s inclusion places him among the very best lawyers, judges and law professionals of Irish descent in the United States.
This year’s Irish Legal 100 includes U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., Associate Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Neil Gorsuch, and numerous other federal and state court judges, legal and business leaders from insurance, financial, energy and manufacturing companies around the world, and presidents, deans and professors from some of the most prestigious Universities and Law Schools in the world.
Mr. Sheridan and his experienced Construction Law Practice Group at Glaser Weil – including colleagues Pete Slevin, Saul Breskal and Ken Whiting – have a winning track record resulting from the hard work necessary to succeed in these complex matters. He was recently inducted as a Fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America for his significant achievements in construction law. Mr. Sheridan’s focus on construction has also allowed him to develop a specialty in construction disputes involving hotels, casinos and resorts, such as the Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara, Diamond Resorts in Kaanapali, Maui and Poipu, Kauai, City Center in Las Vegas, mega-resort Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas, and La Quinta Resort in La Quinta, California. Successes for resort owners in these locales, as well as for owners and architects of multi-billion dollar airport and other projects, continue to demonstrate how critical it is for clients to choose the hardest working legal team in the business.
