Development & Construction in Florida

Serving developers for almost 40 years

The highly experienced construction attorneys at Burke Blue have represented premier developers throughout Northwest Florida for almost four decades. We are partners in building winning developments ranging from shopping centers and amusement parks to condos and subdivisions.

Developers in Florida have a great potential for profit and success, but also face unique challenges because of the multitude of issues that can arise with any development.  Our skilled lawyers in Panama City, Panama City Beach and Sandestin understand the unique issues that Florida developers must confront, including strict land use regulations and environmental controls in shore zones and other protected environments, as well as government relations, code compliance and transportation issues.

Our clients know they can trust our attorneys for competent, experienced and efficient representation and counsel during every phase of a development project.  We cover the entire time span of legal counseling for developers, from acquisition, purchase, planning, construction, and transfer period, to the ultimate sale.  Construction law is a cornerstone practice area at Burke Blue and our team of attorneys can add tremendous value to developers of any size.

Sometimes the ownership, development, use and sale or purchase of real estate can lead to disputes that can only be resolved through litigation. If developers find themselves in this position, be assured that the attorneys at Burke Blue recognize the significance of advocating for your rights and preserving your interests.

Legal counsel and effective representation for construction contractors

The legal issues that construction contractors regularly face include licensing, code compliance, liability and insurance.  A construction law attorney from Burke Blue can help prevent and resolve such issues.  Having a regular relationship with an experienced construction law attorney can help contractors stop problems before they start.

The attorneys at Burke Blue believe that the best service we can provide our clients is dispute avoidance.  This can be achieved through advanced negotiation and the proper drafting of documents, but should our clients find themselves in an adversarial position, our Panama City, Panama City Beach and Sandestin litigation team is prepared to assist them through the entire civil trial process.  The firm also handles appellate matters relating to construction law cases.

At Burke Blue, our construction law attorneys understand how important risk prevention is for a business.  We strive to foster long-term relationships with clients by offering practical and reliable legal advice at fair rates.  Our longevity and involvement in the community make us an excellent resource for developers and contractors throughout northwest Florida.
