FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - Becker & Poliakoff, P.A., a diversified commercial law firm with more than 120 attorneys in 13 Florida offices, New York City, Nassau, Prague and affiliated international offices, today announced that its Construction Law practice and two of its attorneys have been recognized in the 2009 edition of Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business.

Attorney Steve Lesser, who heads the construction practice, received the prestigious Tier 1 ranking in the annual directory which is known for its independent research. Mr. Lesser is Board Certified in Construction Law and devotes his practice exclusively to construction law and litigation and has substantial experience representing owners, developers, contractors, design professionals, and government entities in a variety of construction cases.
