Q & A
What do you enjoy most about practicing construction law?
I take pride in becoming deeply familiar with my clients’ businesses as I counsel them on construction-related matters in the real estate development arena. The construction industry is highly localized, and understanding the nuances of the local operating environments of my clients allows me and my team to craft agreements and strategies that address immediate needs, without losing sight of a client’s overall goals. Real estate development is riddled with challenges, and the construction section of the process is no exception. Hunkering down to ensure my clients are sufficiently equipped to attack each challenge and accomplish their goals electrifies me.
What advantages does Bilzin Sumberg bring to the practice of construction law?
Bilzin Sumberg houses an industry-recognized Construction Law and Litigation Group that is deeply embedded in the South Florida real estate development and construction communities, but it also includes leading land use, real estate, government relations, and litigation practice groups with accomplished attorneys whose practices are highly complementary to the Construction Law and Litigation Group. Many sophisticated firm clients - particularly major developers - often need solutions that cut across these practice areas, and they engage Bilzin Sumberg because all their needs are served comprehensively and seamlessly. I also appreciate the premium the firm places on involvement in industry and community associations that deepen attorney knowledge and leadership skills, which in turn strengthens my counsel to clients.
