In addition to handling the transactional aspects of construction projects, our attorneys also represent clients in litigation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings involving contract disputes, construction defects and other matters. With our attorneys’ experience in business, commercial, real estate and insurance law, we are able to offer insightful guidance and strategic advice for efficiently resolving disputes while addressing potential implications beyond the immediate dispute itself. Our construction litigation and ADR practice consists of representing clients on both sides of disputes involving:
While some disputes will require full-blown litigation or the completion of mandatory ADR, oftentimes, it will be in both parties’ best interests to negotiate an amicable resolution. While this is true with regard to business disputes generally, it is particularly relevant in the context of large-scale construction projects – where it is often in everyone’s best interests to see the project through. In addition to having extensive courtroom experience, our attorneys are also skilled negotiators; and, when appropriate, we utilize our in-depth knowledge of the relevant legal issues and practical considerations to put forth viable offers in compromise that are designed to avoid the burdens and consequences of litigation.
We have longstanding relationships with many of our construction clients, and we routinely advise clients through the duration of large-scale construction projects in Fort Lauderdale and elsewhere. Rather than assigning matters to an individual lawyer, we operate as a firm to provide our clients with comprehensive, efficient and cost-effective legal representation for all aspects of their construction projects. Whether you are at the early stages of a construction project or you need practical legal advice for a construction-related dispute, our lawyers are ready to help.
