Not too long ago, South Florida’s real estate industry and economy was going through a difficult period. The housing crash caused a significant amount of cancelled and abandoned construction projects. This has caused a greater demand for construction and real estate lawyers throughout Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties. Each construction project can be a complicated process. It’s important for contractors to fully understand the language and details of each contract. While most experienced contractors understand the intricacies of getting a construction project started, they may not have the time to fully understand all the provisions in a contract. Because construction projects involve a large amount of contracts from different sources, experience in construction law is more important than ever before.

There are so many things that can wrong with a construction project. Without the proper legal representation, your business could stand to lose a significant amount of money and perhaps face litigation. Many of the most common construction problems in South Florida include:

  • Construction delays

  • Contract issues involving investors, owners, contractors, subcontractors, supplies, employees, and more
  • Building defects including water leaks, mold claims, and structural and safety issues
