Ms. Gart has concentrated her practice in the representation of design professionals, as well as other members of the construction industry, focusing on her clients' professional and business needs as they launch and proceed through all phases of a construction project.

She works closely with her clients in the development and negotiation of agreements for services, and in responding to proposed modifications.  Ms. Gart's strengths in this arena involve advising of and evaluating possible problems and providing solutions to the design professional's or other participant's varied needs.

Ms. Gart primarily practices in LBC&C's Design Professionals and Construction Industry Groups and is a frequent lecturer on a broad range of issues relating to architects, engineers and the construction industry as a whole, such as the liability and economics inherent in green design, intellectual property rights, and the American Institute of Architects' standard agreements and alternatives.

She also authors articles of interest to design professionals on a wide variety of topics.

Ms. Gart received her Juris Doctorate from Hofstra University School of Law in 1979. 

Since her admission to the New York Bar, Ms. Gart's experience includes design professional liability defense and addressing the business issues of her professional clients, such as the preparation and evaluation of business-related agreements.
