NEW YORK CITY-Construction law firm LePatner & Associates has established an investigation unit in the form of an affiliated new firm, Proactive Integrity Associates LLC. Industry veterans Joseph Jaffe and Jonathan Newcomb will lead the new team, which is intended to oversee construction industry practices, construction cost management, and project management investigations on behalf of public agencies and private owners and developers.

“America’s construction industry is well documented to waste over $120 billion annually in avoidable cost overruns,” says Barry LePatner, founder of LePatner & Associates, in a release. “Joseph Jaffe and Jon Newcomb will leverage their vast investigative and integrity monitoring experience to ensure that owners and developers are not forced to bear unnecessary costs arising from improper construction management as well as the unwarranted diversion of project funding from owners.”
