Bachara Construction Law Group successfully represented Environmental Holdings Group (EHG) in a bid protest hearing regarding a contract for the asbestos and mold abatement, demolition, and implosion of the old Duval County Courthouse and City Hall Annex. EHG’s award for the $8M contract was challenged by the second-lowest bidder, which raised some challenging arguments. Following a lengthy hearing before the panel, BCLG was able to defeat each argument and the panel voted unanimously in favor of our client being awarded the bid. On January 20, 2019, we were invited to witness the implosion of the courthouse. It was an exciting morning!
“It is an honor to be recognized by our peers,” said Chip Bachara, the firm’s founder and managing partner, “and we are particularly pleased with this ranking because we were reviewed against many older and larger firms.”
