He has also written briefs for, and argued, a number of appeals. His work has resulted in several published decisions in construction cases. Besides litigating disputes, Mr. Winkler has an active practice in preparing and negotiating construction contracts and subcontracts, and in counseling clients on issues arising while the work is ongoing.
Prior to representing contractors and private owners in construction matters, Mr. Winkler was with the New York City Law Corporation Counsel’s Office, where he was an assistant chief of the Commercial Litigation Division. Among the cases he handled for the City of New York was the defense of a multimillion-dollar changed conditions claim on the construction of the Second Avenue Subway.
