Professional Legal Services for Contractors

As Tampa contractor lawyers, we provide a full spectrum of legal services for contractors including litigation, construction liens, legal document review and drafting, defense against OSHA violations and license complaints, bid protest representation, and more.

Litigation and Lien Assistance for Contractors

Are you having difficulty collecting the money that is owed to you for services or materials provided from a property owner? Are you dealing with a breach of contract from a subcontractor that is unwilling to perform the work they were hired for? These are a couple examples of disputes that may require litigation to be resolved. Construction litigation is a long and trying process, and requires the assistance of a contractor attorney experienced in construction litigation. For the best chance of a successful outcome, we highly recommend seeking the help of a contractor attorney in Tampa that is highly experienced with handling these types of cases.

Expert Review and Drafting of Legal Documents

Having full faith that your contracts are properly constructed is extremely important. If there is any question as to whether your contract is designed to protect your best interest, please contact our office to speak with one of our contractor lawyers for review of your legal documents. We also provide expert drafting services for a wide variety of legal documents including agreements, promissory notes, releases, terms of use, provisions, warranties, and much more.

OSHA violation and License Defense

If you have been issued a violation for non-compliance of OSHA rules and regulations or are facing allegations or complaints against your professional license, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with a Tampa contractor lawyer that specializes in OSHA and license defense. These types of situations should never be taken lightly. If not swiftly and properly dealt with, they can result in steep penalties, restrictions of service offerings, or your professional license being suspended or revoked.

Bid Protest Representation

Have you recently placed a bid on a government solicitation and were not awarded the contract, but feel that your were not awarded the contract because your bid was improperly evaluated? This happens to contractors more often than you may think. Hiring a contractor attorney to represent your bid protest significantly increases the odds of a favorable outcome. We have represented many contractors in the State of Florida with challenging an awarded contract and have also provided representation for bidders who need assistance with defending their bid.
