Boyd & Jenerette Construction Law

The Boyd & Jenerette Construction Law Group offers clients a full-service construction law practice throughout Florida. The firm understands the specialized needs of those in the construction industry, from pre-suit intervention when litigation can be avoided, to a full trial when needed.

Two attorneys in the Construction Law Group—Michael J. Childers and Beth-Ann Schulman—are Board Certified by The Florida Bar in Construction Law. They are experts in residential, commercial and roadway construction law matters, from pre-suit through trial or arbitration.

Litigation avoidance is a priority for Boyd & Jenerette, so the firm works closely with owners, contractors, design professionals, developers, and suppliers on a day-to-day basis to support a range of business and legal needs, including but not limited to:

  • Contract drafting and review
  • Project delays, both during and after construction
  • Insurance coverage disputes
  • Licensure complaints
  • Liens and bonds
  • Surety work

If insurance coverage is not clear given the unique circumstances of a case, the firm can assist with insurance coverage opinions and declaratory actions.

When a dispute arises on a construction project, Boyd & Jenerette attorneys are experienced in negotiating or litigating construction claims involving:

  • Breach of contract
  • Building product liability
  • Construction defects
  • Delay and impact claims
  • Personal injury
  • Professional liability
  • Property damage
  • Wrongful death

The Construction Law Group works hand-in-hand with the Workers’ Compensation and Employment Group to assist clients with employment issues and stop work orders. Several attorneys concentrate in professional liability defense of contractors and design professionals.

The Construction Law Group looks forward to assisting you and your company with all of your construction-related needs. Contact any one of the construction attorneys for further information.
