Contract Disputes

When you are involved in a construction contract dispute, it is crucial that you get proper legal representation. Contracts are legally binding agreements that need to be understood by all parties involved and when disputes arise, they are difficult to navigate and resolve. At Bennett Legal Group, we have extensive experience assisting our client’s with their contract disputes in a professional manner.

In Florida, the rules to interpret most contracts are similar to those of other states. That said, when disputes arise, having an experienced attorney on your side to review contract terms and to make the most of them to support your position can make all the difference. We have experience navigating our clients through their contract disputes because we are knowledgeable of not only the rules and regulations surrounding contracts, but we know how to negotiate contracts effectively.

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)

One set of laws that deals with commercial transactions and has been adopted by all fifty states is the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The UCC does not apply to every situation, but when it does, there is a well-developed body of law that provides guidance in the event of disputes. The most common part of the UCC that applies to construction projects is Article 2, which applies to the “Sale of Goods.” You might wonder how this uniform law could apply to a construction project, but you may be surprised to learn that it does apply under certain circumstances. Our experienced lawyers can help to guide you through the intricacies of when it may apply to certain contracts or purchase orders on your project.

At Bennett Legal Group, we understand that disputing or negotiating contract agreements can be messy. In many cases, contracts may be overlooked as parties do not want to hold up the pace of a project. If you have a contract dispute or legal issue, please contact us. We will ensure your rights are protected at every stage of the process. Call us today at 407-734-4559.
