When you turn to us for help, we put you at the center of our litigation strategy and every action we recommend is constructed with your business objectives in mind.

Integrating real estate knowledge and trial skill

With our integrated real estate and trial skills we can address the unique and complex problems that often arise when real property is developed, purchased, sold, mortgaged, inherited, insured or encumbered — whether for business or individual property owners. Powell, Carney, Maller, P.A. litigators handle:

  • Commercial real estate claims, including breach of real estate sales contracts, title insurance claims, lease disputes, boundary disputes and disputes over realtor and brokers commissions.
  • Financing controversies involving commercial and real property loans, lender liability claims, claims for usury and other violations of laws regulating lending, foreclosures, evictions and deficiency actions.

Large and small landowners, ranging from individual homeowners to commercial developers, ask our help to resolve land development disputes. We also advise sellers and purchasers of real property who must prosecute or defend against claims involving breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation and unfair or deceptive trade practices.

Resolving commercial contract disputes

In addition to contract-related real estate disputes, we advise many other companies when controversies arise over interpretation of terms in purchase and sale contracts and related warranties. Whether the issue is inaccurate disclosure of financial information, negotiation of terms in bad faith, or allegations of anti-competitive conduct, you’ll get the full range of remedies available — from resolution under the Florida Uniform Commercial Code statutes Chapter 671 to pursuit of tort claims through litigation.
