Lisa Lombardo

Newark, NJ

Ms. Lombardo has successfully litigated matters before the state and federal courts of New Jersey and New York, as well as the American Arbitration Association, with a focus on construction matters. Her experience in commercial litigation and construction litigation is unique in that she represents both plaintiffs and defendants. Most recently, she was co-lead counsel in a three-year long arbitration representing a major university in a claim involving extensive and complex design and construction defects, which resulted in a multimillion-dollar award in our client’s favor and the arbitrator striking down a limitation of liability clause. Unlike most litigators in the construction arena, Ms. Lombardo also has experience drafting contracts. She has worked with owners, contractors, subcontractors, and designers to draft contracts for projects involving academic centers, public schools, laboratory facilities, office buildings, energy facilities, public/private projects, and building additions of varying sizes.
