Experience

With more than 30 years of experience, in state, federal, and administrative proceedings and trials, as well as arbitration and mediation, Mr. Rosin has successfully prosecuted his client’s claims and defended their interest in disputes arising from the construction of bridges, highways, energy production and waste treatment facilities, jails and prisons, manufacturing plants, dams, pipelines, site utilities, and aqueducts, heavy rail transit vehicles, office developments, high-rise structures, schools, hospitals, residential projects. Drawing on that experience, he is able to develop strategies to resolve disputes cost effectively and expeditiously, and he is able to draft and negotiate agreements that take into account the actual realities of construction in the field. Mr. Rosin has successfully argued appeals to the California District Courts of Appeal, including the first California decision with regard to best value procurement, Schram Construction, Inc. v. Regents of University of California, 187 Cal. App. 4th 1040 (2010). He was the lead (and sole) counsel in a complex, month long trial that resulted in a $2.1 million judgment in favor of his client, the general contractor on a school construction project; the judgment included $695,981 in prompt payment penalties and $839,212 in attorney’s fees. The author of articles on mechanic’s lien, bonds and suretyship, environmental regulation, the Uniform Commercial Code, and prompt payment statutes, he is a frequent speaker at seminars and continuing education programs for attorneys, contractors, material suppliers and construction managers. Mr. Rosin is a past member of the California Bar Association’s respected Committee on the Administration of Justice, and he has testified before the State Legislature in connection with legislation affecting the construction industry.
