How Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon Can Help
In a construction project, we know that you’re not just dealing with professionals; you may also be dealing with landowners and homeowners.
As a result, it is important for a construction law lawyer to have business expertise. Interpersonal communication and negotiation can make or break a construction project. Our construction law attorneys understand this and can assist you in a variety of common situations.
Breach of Contract Claims
Virtually all construction contracts involve complex agreements between the construction company performing the work and the person or business requesting the construction.
Further still, there may be contracts between suppliers, transporters, and subcontractors used on the job. If there is a breach of the terms in any of the contracts to which you are a party, we can provide construction law litigation services.
Mechanic’s Liens or Other Lien Disputes
Our construction law attorneys have developed a strong understanding of the nuances in Florida’s construction laws. Florida’s lien laws, for example, are very complex.
Whether you’re a developer or a subcontractor, knowing who can claim a lien, when, and how, are important steps to protecting your interests. A Florida construction law attorney can help you navigate these issues effectively.
Construction Defects Litigation
After a construction project is completed, a defect could exist in the design or construction of the project. For residential or commercial projects, construction defects can have serious consequences.
Our construction law litigation attorneys can assist you in holding the appropriate party responsible for any defects in a construction project.
In Florida, the statute of limitations for a defect in the design or construction of a property is four years. If the defect is not immediately apparent, Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon can help you determine if you can still bring a legal action after that time has passed.
Because there is a limited time to file a lawsuit, it’s important to contact a Pensacola construction law lawyer as soon as possible after you discover a defect.
We Understand Florida Construction Law
Our Florida construction law attorneys have been serving Pensacola residents for more than 100 years. Our firm has the depth of experience to provide you with high-quality construction law representation at every stage.
Because construction law is so closely linked to several other areas of law, Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon understands the importance of access to legal experts in a variety of practice areas.
As a full service law firm, we can help you not only with construction law, but also with OSHA compliance, personal injury claims, land use, and more.
Construction Litigation Can Be Complex
Construction law in particular can be complicated because of the number of people involved.
On top of the dozens of contracts and agreements that may be present, legal problems can add a whole new layer of stress to any construction project. By hiring a Pensacola construction law lawyer, you can take some of that weight off of your shoulders.
