Evaluating Claims in Real Estate Litigation

Real estate-related disputes can involve a broad range of issues. Property owners, purchasers, tenants, developers, and others need to make informed decisions about how and when to pursue claims in litigation. Accordingly, we help our clients make informed and strategic decisions about what claims to pursue. When representing clients as defense counsel, we assess potential counterclaims and third-party claims in addition to evaluating potential defense strategies.

From contract claims to statutory rights and issues involving unconstitutional “takings” under the Fifth Amendment, each Fort Lauderdale real estate litigation attorney at our firm has deep experience advising and representing clients concerning all types of real estate-related disputes. If you are facing a disruptive dispute or a dispute that has the potential to impact your business negatively, we can provide the insights you need to move forward with confidence.

Resolving Complex Real Estate Disputes Through All Means Available

In addition to handling matters in Florida’s state and federal courts, we work with clients to resolve complex real estate disputes through private negotiations, mediation, and arbitration. Many leases, purchase agreements, and other contracts require the parties to submit their disputes to mediation or arbitration. Even if one of these forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is not required, it may still be in both parties’ best interests to avoid the costs and delays of going to trial.  A Fort Lauderdale real estate litigation attorney at Olive Judd can help you evaluate your options and diligently pursue a favorable result.
