Widerman Malek, PL’s substantial experience in construction law, including personal experience working for years in the construction and design industry, has given us the opportunity to represent a variety of industry professionals: property owners, developers, construction managers, architects, engineers, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, manufacturers, and government entities. We have also worked to resolve matters with each of these industry professionals, including all levels of government entities, such as water management districts, the Florida Department of Transportation, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and many others.
We offer comprehensive legal services which allow us to counsel clients throughout the construction process, from bid selection and contract negotiation to warranty periods and claims resolution. This allows us to help manage risks proactively and after completion of projects.
Widerman Malek, PL’s construction attorneys have handled numerous and varied construction-related cases, many of which have involved extremely complex issues with multiple defendants and a multitude of construction defects. Our construction attorneys represent clients in both transactions and disputes ranging from single and multi-family dwellings to large commercial buildings, planned unit developments, retail, and governmental projects.
The attorneys in our construction law practice have the skill and experience to advise construction professionals on matters including construction contract preparation, bid protests, permitting, management and scheduling disputes, minority or woman-owned business certification issues, lien and bond claims, payment disputes, and breach of contract claims. Although we have significant experience in litigating construction matters from pre-suit demand through trial and the appeals process, we recognize the value of alternative resolution methods such as arbitration and mediation. We also recognize the need for practical answers to technical questions that often arise prior to, during, and after construction projects.
