What strategy works best for you in a construction dispute?

There can be a lot of excitement when Miami businesses become involved in a large new construction project. A single project can change an entire community, and, for construction companies, it can be the difference between being profitable and floundering financially. The truth of the matter, though, is that a project can also go downhill very quickly, which often gives rise to a major construction dispute involving multiple entities involved in the project.

Recently, this blog discussed some options available to companies involved in a construction dispute. By filing a construction lien in accordance with Florida law, entities that have not been paid for their labor or materials can seek to enforce their right to payment against the property itself. There are strict requirements that must be followed in order to file and foreclose upon a construction lien, however, and the lien can be lost if these requirements are not followed.

Even without a construction lien, there are different ways in which businesses can seek payment for their work on a project. For example, companies may bring a legal action for breach of contract against those entities that breached the contract by not making payment.

Our firm has worked with numerous clients to secure payment for their work on construction projects. We investigate the facts of each case, as well as the applicable law, to determine what course of action is best for our clients. Whether we pursue a construction lien, file an action based on a breach of contract, or pursue some other strategy, we have our clients' best interests in mind as we vigorously protect and enforce their rights.
