Cotney has significant experience in roadway and infrastructure law.  We routinely negotiate multi-million dollar contracts involving infrastructure improvements and act as a trusted advisor from project development and acquisition through project completion and delivery.  We assist contractors with bid proposals and bid protests where necessary for local, state, provincial, and federal projects.  In addition to that, we also negotiate, draft, and facilitate Public-Private Partnerships (P3) project delivery methods.  

We have over 200 years of combined experience litigating claims related to infrastructure improvements.  In particular, Cotney’s strength in roadway, underground utility, and renewable energy infrastructure projects allows us to combine multiple practice areas throughout our divisions to ensure our clients are getting the expertise they need to succeed.  

Sample Experience:

  • Representation of Roadway Contractor in $100 million dispute involving multiple state highways.
  • Representation of General Contractor on $50 million solar infrastructure project.
  • Representation of City in $5 million dollar dispute with the Department of Transportation.

Cotney has experience with roadway, bridge, canal, communications, solid waste, hazardous waste, railroad, utility, power, solar, hospitals, schools and universities, community housing, prisons, and other infrastructure projects.  As a member of the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) and the Florida Transportation and Builders Association (FTBA), we actively support the industry and have several employees that have worked in the industry prior to joining Cotney.
