Construction Defect Claims, and New Construction and Repair Contract Enforcement for Owners

A Premier Florida Construction Law Firm

When it comes to construction, countless things can go wrong at any stage of the process. This is especially true in complex projects. Success may hinge on numerous parties all doing their jobs well (and on time). Shortcuts, oversights, and mistakes can not only ratchet up the costs but also derail the entire project and cause headaches down the road.

Fortunately, it is possible to mitigate risks — and the costs associated with them — by taking proper legal precautions. Knowledgeable legal counsel is crucial for avoiding unnecessary expenses. Likewise, when disputes do arise, it’s critical to protect your rights by enlisting an experienced legal team.
