Mission Statement

Canfield Madden & Ruggiero LLP is a boutique law firm that strives to provide superior counsel to its small business clientele.

A significant portion of our practice involves the representation of construction companies. The Firm supports our clients in every aspect of their business ... during the pre-construction, contract formation period; during contract performance phase; and during the post-contract, dispute resolution period. We recognize that every client who is seeking the advice of an attorney has individual needs and goals. We pride ourselves on taking the time to listen and understand what is most important to each and every person who seeks our advice. We also take whatever time is necessary to discuss and explore the realistic possibilities for the outcome of the client's matter, whether it is a dispute that requires litigation or one that might be resolved in a non-adversarial process. We never exaggerate the value of a claim or underestimate the cost of representation just to convince a person to hire us, and we are guided by the ultimate benefit realized by the client in recommending courses of action.

The Firm had initially concentrated in the practice of construction law since its inception in 1981. We represent owners, developers, sureties, general contractors, subcontractors, fabricators, suppliers, and design professionals in support of public and private construction, and through that representation we have gained credibility among our peers and a reputation for strong capability for our clients.

However, as years of experience have turned to decades, the Firm's practice has extended to like representation in other industries. We now count among our loyal clients other businesses including soft drink companies, restaurants, and retailers. We remain uniformly focused upon business counsel, contract formation and compliance, and dispute resolution.


Mr. Canfield practices in the area of construction and commercial litigation matters and represents clients in New York State and United States Federal Courts, and in all arbitration and mediation venues.  He is a member of the New York State and Nassau County Bar Associations.

He joined the firm in 1991, after serving as a Mechanical Engineer and Project Manager for the US Army Corps of Engineers, New York District for six years. As a Project Manager with the US Army Corps, Mr. Canfield coordinated designs of large-scale building construction projects for military installations, serving as the liaison between Army and Air Force users and project designers, from project programming through the successful award of the projects. Mr. Canfield was also extensively involved in negotiation of design contracts and change orders, and in the resolution of construction disputes, particularly those concerning design deficiency or omissions.

Mr. Canfield's first-hand understanding of the professional issues that accompany bringing large scale construction projects to completion is of great value to clients in large public, commercial and residential litigation. His experience has been of great benefit in representation of developers, contractors, fabricators and suppliers, based primarily in New York but also from such far-flung locales as Quebec, Florida and Japan.

Mr. Canfield is a graduate of Bucknell University, where he received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (1985), received his Juris Doctor from St. Johns University School of Law (1992), and studied International Law at Cambridge University (1990). He was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1993, United States Southern District Bar in 1994, United States Eastern District in 1995 and United State Northern District in 2004.
