PRLog - May 13, 2014 - Miami, FL – May 13, 2014 –Melinda S. Gentile, a Partner in the Miami office of the national construction law firm of Peckar & Abramson P.C. (P&A), has been named Co-Chair of the 5th annual Engineering News-Record (ENR) Groundbreaking Women in Construction (GWIC) Conference. The conference will take place on June 12, 2014 at the McGraw-Hill Conference Center in New York City.

More than a decade ago, Peckar & Abramson developed the first GWIC conference with the goal of convening women—and men—to address the issues confronting women in the construction industry and to create a forum where they could gain information and forge relationships to assist in the advancement of their careers.  Five years ago, P&A entered into an agreement with ENR to take leadership of the conference and to transform it into a national landmark event.

This year’s theme, "Personal Career Strategies to Advance Your Professional Path," gives women in construction the opportunity to learn success strategies from others who have advanced through the ranks, explore the shifting dynamics among genders in the construction workplace and make connections to further their careers. This year’s Conference will explore the challenges women face in construction and how they compare to other industries, investigate tactics for overcoming stereotypes and help identify and manage opportunities for the future professional growth of women in construction. The Conference will include panel sessions featuring perspectives from prominent women, as well as men, in the field.

Gentile’s practice focuses on all aspects of construction law and construction dispute resolution including the preparation and negotiation of contracts and handling of construction matters ranging from bid protests to contract disputes, and from construction liens to defect, impact, bond and insurance claims. Active in the community, Gentile is a past president of the National Association of Women in Construction – Broward County chapter; a member of the Construction Association of South Florida; and the Associated Builders and Contractors – East Coast Chapter. She has been ranked in  Chambers USA since 2006 for excellence in construction law, named a Best Lawyer in America since 2008, selected to Florida Super Lawyers for the last eight years, recognized in the International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers for Construction, a Leading Lawyer in Construction in The Legal 500: United States, a Top Attorney in Florida in the American Registry, a 2013 Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Women Lawyers, a Woman of Vision by the Young at Art Museum and an Up and Comer by the South Florida Business Journal.

Peckar & Abramson, P.C. maintains offices in New York, New Jersey, Florida, California, Washington, D.C., Illinois, Georgia and Pennsylvania, and has affiliations with global firms in Latin America (through its founding membership in CONSTRULEGAL), London and China. In addition to its core construction practice, the firm has practice groups who counsel contractors on labor and employment matters, corporate and regulatory compliance issues including D/M/WBE compliance and general corporate and real estate matters.
