Anthony Luckie Speaks With Columbia University On Receiving Graduate Degree in Construction Administration Alongside His Father
New York, N.Y. (September 7, 2023) – New York Partner Anthony P. Luckie recently spoke with the Columbia University School of Professional Studies' Alumni publication regarding earning a Master of Science in Construction Administration alongside his father, as well as how the degree will benefit his law practice and clients.
As the article explains, Mr. Luckie and his father completed Columbia’s Construction Administration Program last year – only one week before the birth of Mr. Luckie’s own son. Mr. Luckie described that being accepted into the program at Columbia – a school from which “some of the most important figures in American history” have graduated – “was a really big thrill . . . .” He further explained that although he felt a sense of pride in earning the degree, the fact that he and his father shared the experience held even greater meaning for him. He noted, “[W]hile it’s an incredible achievement for both of us to graduate from an Ivy League school, for me, that day was a culmination of a father raising his son. Standing there with him onstage . . . I made sure I took time to feel grateful.”
In addition, Mr. Luckie described how earning the degree will help him expand his law practice, noting, “With this degree, I now know I can litigate contractual disputes, mechanic’s liens, and property-damage cases. I mean, how many lawyers actually know how to use the software that companies use to make scheduling? How many know how to read a blueprint? The answer is not many. But now I do.”
Mr. Luckie is a member of Lewis Brisbois’ General Liability and New York Labor Law Practices. His practice focuses primarily on construction litigation, including construction accident matters. Mr. Luckie also has extensive experience in premises liability and personal injury litigation.
