Vanessa D. Roberts, a litigation associate in McCarter & English's Hartford office, was named to Hartford Business Journal's 40 under Forty list of "the region's most promising young business people."

"Vanessa exemplifies everything we expect of our leaders in the business community, from her first rate work to her commitment to various business and public service organizations," said William Bright, managing partner of the Hartford office, "It's very gratifying to see her get this outside recognition."

She represents corporations and individuals in the state and federal courts, in arbitrations and mediations, during every stage of the civil pretrial process, and at the appellate court levels.

He has been involved in projects ranging from energy plants, pipelines, highways, bridges, and mass transit to telecommunications, municipal and governmental agency projects, industrial and high-rise buildings, and insurance disputes including builder's risk and professional liability claims for Fortune 500 companies and has also worked extensively in drafting and negotiating design and construction contracts.

An Adjunct Professor at Columbia University, Mr. Rubin has lectured for the American Bar Association, the American Society of Civil Engineers, Practising Law Institute and other societies and universities on construction contract documents, construction claims, surety law, professional liability, alternative dispute resolution, and government contract law. Mr. Rubin is the 2007 recipient of the prestigious Cornerstone Award of the ABA, Forum on the Construction Industry

Mr. Rubin received a Bachelor of Civil Engineering from Cornell University and a Juris Doctor from Columbia University.

Ms. Biser has extensive experience representing owners, developers and contractors in all stages of the construction process, including contract negotiations, drafting and contract administration. She has been lead counsel in drafting construction management, design professional and trade contractor agreements for a national telecommunications company for its national projects and for a major Internet conglomerate that is constructing its futuristic headquarters in Manhattan. She also was lead counsel in drafting construction management and design professional agreements for the partial build-out of one of the largest mixed-use office buildings built in New York City in the past five years.

Ms. Biser has been lead counsel in litigation involving construction disputes including a recent jury trial in which she won breach of contract damages on behalf of an asphalt demolition company.
