Zachary N. Scalzo is an associate at Orbach Huff & Henderson and focuses on construction, real property, procurement, contracts, business services, administrative law, litigation, and appeals and writs.

Zachary represents public school districts and public agencies throughout the state, from K-12 and community college districts to state agencies that manage hundreds of facilities. His practice includes both transactions and client advisement, contract drafting, claims evaluation, risk management and litigation. Zachary also advises clients with respect to the State Allocation Board’s rules and regulations, appeals at the SAB, and writs of mandate arising from those issues.

He also has extensive experience in alternative construction delivery methods and has been involved in the handling of delicate issues of architect fault and indemnity. Additionally, Zachary advises clients in procurement methods available to public agencies, including competitive bidding, CMAS, piggybacks, and cooperative purchasing agreements.

He also assists in advising clients on a host of real property issues, from joint use agreements to facilities use under the Civic Center Act.

In his spare time, Zachary likes playing with his Chiweenie (a Dachshund / Chihuahua mix), spending time with his kids and fiancé and, to the dismay of his California colleagues, cheering for all Chicago sports teams.
