Experienced Litigation Counsel for Complex and High-Stakes Construction Disputes

We have a century of experience representing clients in complex and high-stakes construction litigation in Florida and nationwide. Our experience includes defending insurers, property owners, developers, architecture and engineering firms, contractors, and other clients in state and federal court, and we have handled matters ranging from cases involving single-unit properties to multi-party litigation involving projects with thousands of individual units.

At O’Connor, Haftel & Angell, PLLC, our relationships with many construction-industry clients date back several decades. We credit these long-standing relationships to our collaborative, client-first approach that prioritizes working with clients to understand and achieve their goals. We work closely with our clients to ensure that we have all the information we need to represent them effectively and that they have the information they need to make informed decisions at all stages of the litigation process.

Our Construction Litigation Practice

Within our construction litigation practice, we represent clients involved in all aspects of the construction process—from lending and insuring to designing, constructing, and inspecting. We handle disputes arising before, during, and after construction, including (but not limited to) those involving:

  • Bond and lien claims
  • Commercial fraud
  • Construction defect claims
  • Construction delay claims
  • Habitability and workmanship issues
  • Insurance claims

Beyond construction litigation, we handle disputes involving commercial issues, general liability, professional liability, and other matters. The breadth of our practice serves our clients well, as we can effectively handle all of the various types of litigation that can flow from disputes arising in the construction context.

A Century of Experience Resolving Complex Disputes Through Litigation

Unlike many other small firms, we do not hesitate to litigate complex construction disputes at trial and on appeal. This is what we have done—and it is all we have done—since the beginning. Our lawyers have the experience and insights needed to provide effective representation at all phases of litigation, and our firm has the resources required to handle complex construction cases efficiently and in a sophisticated manner.

Collectively, our current attorneys have tried hundreds of cases in Florida’s state and federal courts and courts across the country. Our approach is fundamentally oriented towards litigation, focusing on becoming “trial ready” from the start of each engagement. Our reputation as litigators serves our clients well—not only during the litigation process but also in settlement negotiations (when settlement negotiations are warranted). When opposing counsel knows that going to verdict is very much on the table, this alone can provide significant leverage for securing a favorable pre-trial resolution.
