Construction Claims and Litigation

I handle complex construction claims and disputes on vertical and horizontal federal projects, state public projects, and private projects in Florida and outside of Florida.   I prosecute and defend claims in all forums (federal court, state court, board of contract appeals, and arbitration) for general contractors, subcontractors, developers, owners, sureties, and suppliers.   I handle a host of issues that touch any complicated construction project including, without limitation, delay claims, inefficiency and lost productivity claims, acceleration claims, differing site conditions claims, construction and design defect claims, property insurance and commercial general liability insurance claims, construction licensing issues, performance bond claims, contractor and subcontractor default claims, payment bond claims, lien claims, termination for cause and for convenience claims, OSHA issues, workers compensation issues, change order issues, requests for equitable adjustment, pass-through claims, bid protests, Davis Bacon and prevailing wage rate issues, and claims under the Contract Disputes Act.   Besides having extensive experience handling all types of construction claims and disputes, I also have extensive experience preparing and negotiating construction contracts dealing with various project delivery methods.  You can learn more about my diverse construction practice by checking out my blog at Florida Construction Legal Updates. 

My diverse practice representing clients across the construction industry allows me focus on those driving issues in a dispute because I appreciate those issues that drive business decisions and objectives.  As a result, no issue is too big, and no issue is too small—the only issue is resolving a client’s problem in the most efficient and cost effective manner.   

I do this by taking advantage of and leveraging technology, working with the client to bring in the right expert on the frontend, and, in certain instances, utilizing an e-discovery vendor to streamline electronic discovery costs.  I understand the importance of providing value to a client measured by a lawyer’s advice, suggestions, and performance.  My model allows me to explore innovative attorney’s fee arrangements based on the dynamics of a dispute or issue outside of the traditional hourly billing model. 

 While I maintain a competitive hourly rate and work with clients in preparing budgets and controlling costs, I also work with clients on innovative attorney’s fees arrangements where the focus is performance, the result, and the client’s budgetary concerns.  An innovative fee arrangement is catered to the client’s specific objectives.  I am willing to present alternative options to a client for consideration and discussion to determine if a compatible innovative fee arrangement can be established that adds value to a client.   Let me represent your construction interests and provide you a value-added solution to your claim or problem!
