Cotney Construction Law is comprised of a group of attorneys who have real-world experience and a pragmatic approach to navigating construction challenges on the behalf of our clients. Over the years, we have represented and defended construction professionals including but not limited to contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and engineers in all aspects of construction law matters. We have offices in several major cities across the State of Florida and are prepared to offer our clients preemptive legal guidance, tenacious defense, or zealous representation in the following areas and more:

Litigation and Arbitration

The construction industry is adversarial by nature and a combination of factors can give rise to disputes. If a conflict occurs between you and another party and you require an intermediary, a Florida construction attorney from our firm can help resolve your dispute by guiding you through the alternative dispute resolution or litigation process.

OSHA Defense

We are well-acquainted with OSHA law and the associated workplace standards and regulations. We help construction professionals maintain compliance and increase safety in the workplace. Our attorneys also provide representation and defense to clients facing all types of OSHA violations and complaints. We understand the inspection and citation processes and will fight to get fines and penalties reduced or eliminated.

Construction Lien and Bond Claims

We prepare lien and bond documents at fixed prices. Lien and bond claims involve rules and deadlines that must be met for rights to be preserved. A knowledgeable attorney will walk you through filing notices, claim of liens, affidavits, sworn statements, and release of liens to ensure you preserve your rights.

Contract Review and Drafting

Contracts and other legal documents play a central role in the construction industry. They are crucial for setting forth expectations, defining responsibilities, and outlining remedies. They require meticulous detail and careful review. We have extensive experience reviewing and drafting legal documents including forms such as the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and ConsensusDOCS and will ensure your contracts are ironclad before embarking on your new project.

These are but a few of the services we offer our clients. We can assist you with many more including, license defense, bid protests, employment law, bankruptcy law, and trademark applications. Do not hesitate to contact a Florida construction attorney from Cotney Attorneys & Consultants.
