NAWIC was founded in 1953 to create a support network for women in construction. It has since become a national organization of women who own, or are officers of, building firms; office personnel of general and sub-contractors; or are employed in administrative capacity by trade associations and architectural firms. Today, NAWIC members work in all capacities of the construction industry, including field, engineering, design, ownership, and administrative positions. NAWIC provides its members with opportunities for professional development, education, networking, leadership training, public service and more.
We are pleased to announce the promotion of Matthew Feinberg to Partner in the firm’s Litigation Group and of Michelle Litteken to Counsel in our Government Contracts Group.
Mr. Feinberg is an accomplished litigator with over a decade of experience in all aspects of state and federal civil and appellate litigation, in addition to alternative dispute resolution.

He also represents and counsels clients involved in investigations conducted by the Department of Justice and other federal and state regulators and on matters relating to the False Claims Act. Mr. Feinberg is among a small group of lawyers in the country who have represented a company in a successful appeal of a New York Stock Exchange delisting decision. In addition to earning favorable verdicts, judgments, and settlements on behalf of clients, he is also adept at helping clients avoid litigation through counseling, consultation, and negotiation. Clients in emerging and developing industries benefit from Mr. Feinberg’s ability to navigate complex federal and state laws and regulations, effectively communicate with investors and the public, and manage day-to-day business challenges.
