Authored by experienced construction lawyers, this manual is a comprehensive treatment of construction law. Chapters cover the rights and liabilities of parties to construction projects, the bid process involving public entities, trial preparation, and alternative dispute resolution and partnering.

  • The impact of the Florida Statute Evidence Code amendment based on Daubert regarding admissibility of expert testimony is raised 
  • Statutory amendments impacting the Notice of Commencement, changes in the requirements for written demands for contract copies, and added flexibility for notices, claims of lien and other served documents 
  • The pre-suit notice requirements changed by statute are discussed 
  • Changes to public construction bonds, private payment bonds and public bids are detailed 
  • Case law, statute, and rule references are reviewed and updated
