Thomas S. Tripodianos

Thomas S. Tripodianos is a Partner at Welby, Brady, & Greenblatt where he is involved in all aspects of construction, labor and employment law. Doing a good job for the range of clients we represent—buyers, sellers, lenders, developers, general contractors, construction managers, owners, architects, engineers, subcontractors, suppliers, sureties and other entities—means going beyond essential legal services to developing relationships and a deep understanding of client goals and needs.

As a first-generation Greek American, Mr. Tripodianos’ interest in real estate and construction law grew out of his early responsibilities managing properties for his family’s business in Queens. Mr. Tripodianos is a mentor for the next generation of attorneys, providing thoughtful leadership, actively participating in industry organizations and committees, and making connections. Putting two clients together who may not otherwise have joined forces and seeing their ventures succeed is one of his most satisfying aspects of work. Mr. Tripodianos prides himself on going beyond essential legal services to developing relationships and a deep understanding of client goals and needs.
