Florida Construction Litigation

The Florida residential and commercial construction industry is dynamic and teeming with opportunities for both businesses and individuals. In a dynamic environment, it is important that you have someone protecting your interests every step of the way. The Boatman Law Firm has the experience and the knowledge to help you navigate any construction project or dispute.

Our Experience In Florida Construction Law

Our experienced attorneys have represented nearly every potential party to a dispute on a construction project, including owners, developers, sureties, design professionals, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. We have litigated, arbitrated, and mediated construction cases in a variety of cities including Tallahassee, Orlando, Jacksonville and Southwest Florida.  Our experience includes the handling of major construction defect lawsuits, including complex class-action lawsuits.

In addition to our litigation experience, we continually provide general counsel services to small businesses and individuals, helping them manage their construction projects from start to finish. We are involved in all phases of construction projects, and our attorneys work with our clients to answer day-to-day questions with respect to: contract negotiations and document preparation, injunctions, delay, disruption, and acceleration claims process, surety bond claims, construction changes and differing site conditions, Mechanics’ and Construction Lien Laws, corporate compliance and dispute procedures and compliance with the Statutory Notice Provisions of F.S. 558 as a condition precedent to filing a claim for construction defects. We work with both local and out of state businesses and individuals to help address issues that are unique to the State of Florida.
