Construction Litigation Law Firm Serving Orlando

Construction is a unique industry with unique types of issues arising in addition to the standard business ones.

We believe that this requires a dedicated approach.

Over the years, we have assisted designers, engineers, builders and other contractors and subcontractors solve these issues largely out of the courtroom. We have also represented property owners on the “other side” of the fence.

Typically, construction litigation cases involve contract disputes, construction defects, delays and extra work claims, payment disputes, and insurance disputes.

We always stress to contractors, subcontractors, design professionals and owners the importance of creating detailed construction contracts that set out the rights and responsibilities of each party before the job begins.

While misunderstandings, mistakes and disputes are a natural part of doing business in the construction industry in Florida, the strength of your contracts is key to determining the impact of disputes on your future.

Construction litigation with an ADR-first approach

With our construction background, we understand the typical issues that arise in construction disputes along with the risks involved for all parties.

This places us in a strong position to be able to mediate disputes.

Although we are a construction litigation law firm, we work with our clients so that matters don’t end up in front of a judge. We recognize the importance of being prepared for this eventuality but take the steps to avoid it. A trial creates often avoidable expenses, project delays, uncertainty and stress.

Negotiation, mediation, and arbitration are alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods that are alternatives to a trial. We generally recommend them and provide these services.

Clients prefer it. The civil court system in Florida prefers it. And we prefer it. When it serves the best interest of our clients.

Ultimately, all parties want the project completed on time and within budget. This overarching goal is important to bear in mind when construction projects run into complications.
