Whether dealing with a seemingly simple addition to a residence, or the design and construction of a complex center or multi-story building, few areas of law produce as many disputes as construction law. The attorneys in Macfarlane Ferguson & McMullen’s construction contract litigation practice area have experience in simple contract disputes as well as complex statutory and regulatory schemes, including Florida’s construction lien law. The Firm’s clients include owners, design professionals, contractors, and lenders.
The Firm’s litigation attorneys regularly assert and defend claims arising out of a broad range of construction disputes. Because construction claims often involve great amounts of paperwork, the Firm has developed resources to index the many documents to which reference is required during construction litigation, enabling its attorneys to quickly access these documents online. This is a good example of how the Firm’s attorneys make use of the most current technology to more expeditiously handle complex construction claims.
Construction cases also are unique in requiring an unusually close working relationship between attorneys and expert witnesses. Under the direction of the lead attorney, the Firm’s team approach actively involves the client, consulting experts, and the attorneys working together.
