Michael De Chiara featured in What Role will Union Construction Play in the NYC of Tomorrow? The Real Deal

A panel of owners, construction managers and labor leaders assembled ... at the Union League on Park Avenue to discuss the future of union construction labor in a city that’s increasingly open shop.

At the panel — hosted by law firm Zetlin & De Chiara and moderated by founding partner Michael De Chiara — former New York Building Congress president Richard Anderson said there was good news: building permits are finally up, 145,000 people are working on job sites throughout the boroughs and the office market is strong with big-ticket projects in the pipeline. “What could threaten this kind of a robust portrait?” he asked. The answer, panelists said, was sky-high costs.
