Kriton A. Pantelidis is an associate of Harris Beach PLLC and chiefly practices in the Construction and Surety Law Practice Groups. He concentrates his practice in the area of construction and commercial litigation and defends various entities (manufacturers, import/export companies, construction contractors, and design firms) in complex disputes involving bodily injury, property damage, and economic loss.
Present cases of note include: defending against a multi-million dollar business interruption/engineering malpractice claim involving a billion dollar construction project at the United Nations (where he acts as the lead associate overseeing junior associates); representing a general contractor against allegations of materials and workmanship defects in connection with a high-rise New York City condominium building; and managing the defense team in a multi-million dollar land use/nuisance environmental claim.
Prior to joining Harris Beach, Mr. Pantelidis practiced exclusively in the area of professional malpractice where he defended architects and engineers against countless suits spanning the professional spectrum. Cases of notoriety included both the 51st street and 91st street crane collapses. The 91st street crane collapse involved a number of personal injury and property damage claims including two wrongful death actions. The 51st street crane collapse engendered an economic loss suit by the developer’s bridge loan lender (for an amount in excess of $60 million) involving a complicated zoning opinion issued by the developer’s architect.
