Contracts are the foundation of the construction industry and the corporate business world. There are myriad ways that a construction or commercial contract can be breached. One party’s failure to fulfill their contractual obligations, with evidence of resulting damages, can be the emergence of a dispute and a subsequent courtroom proceeding.
Worman & Sheffler, P.A. is a construction and commercial litigation law firm, with extensive experience in complex litigation claims. While many cases are settled before reaching the courtroom, we prepare every dispute as if presented before a judge and a jury. In preparation for a trial, our highly qualified professional staff analyzes evidence and depositions. We have an extensive network of resources, including experts that can establish cause and effect relationships and provide evidentiary exhibits. As an effective advocate for our clients, we present comprehensive, cohesive arguments on behalf of our clients’ perspective and challenge the opposing testimony
These are a sampling of our construction and commercial litigation case examples, with proven successful results:
- Construction and mechanic’s liens, bond claims, construction defects, design errors and omissions, structural failures, products liability, property line disputes, zoning, land use disputes, intellectual property claims, scheduling disputes, professional liability claims, insurance bad-faith claims, business creditor issues, business torts, breach of fiduciary duty, partnership and shareholder claims and employer-employee disputes
Disputes in construction and commercial law are inevitable, but through careful drafting and review of contracts, many disputes can be avoided. Some common reasons for disputes and subsequent courtroom litigation are misinterpretation or errors and omissions in the contract. Other circumstances that can provoke lawsuits are vague or ambiguous terminology, non-compliance with the terms and conditions of the contract, failure to perform as expected, limited resources, or force majeure events.
