Construction Industry

Representation of parties involved in major construction projects is central to our practice. We are experienced with all types of major public and private construction projects and represent clients in matters involving changed or differing site conditions, delay damages, extra work, loss of productivity or efficiency, design defects and bid protests. Our practice includes litigation, project administration assistance, transactional work and alternative dispute resolution. In addition, we advise our clients in the preparation and negotiation of contract documents, joint venture agreements, and project finance arrangements.

We are active members of several leading Construction and Surety groups including the Florida Transportation Builders Association (“FTBA”), Associated Builders and Contractors (“ABC”), Suncoast Utility Contractors Association (“SUCA”) and the Surety Claims Institute. Moreover, because of our experience, we are often asked to author articles and to speak before various groups including, the Florida Department of Transportation, FTBA, ABC, SUCA, Florida Surety Association, Chicago Surety Claims Association and Atlanta Surety Claims Association.

Moreover, although our practice frequently results in litigation against FDOT and other public agencies, we have been asked and have successfully represented governmental entities in a variety of legal, regulatory and legislative issues. The willingness of public agencies to retain our firm speaks to our reputation for competence, professionalism and fairness.
