Background On Construction Law

Construction law can involve litigation and transactional matters and often involves contractual matters. On the transactional side, lawyers can be involved in negotiating contracts and general procurement before construction work begins. Construction projects in Fort Lauderdale often involve a variety of different players, and the construction attorney will work with those initiating the project, those financing the project, those designing the structure and those performing the actual construction.

On the litigation side, construction litigation, where there is a lawsuit or fear of an impending lawsuit, when something goes wrong like breaching certain contractual terms or that the project is running behind schedule. Often the contract that was created at the procurement phase of the project will address how disputes are to be handled.

As a general observation, when the economy is down work decreases for transactional attorneys and increases for litigation attorneys. Accordingly, the economic climate has a significant impact on the construction market and the work done by construction lawyers.
