One of the many advantages BCLG offers is a genuine commitment to our clients’ best interests. In the courtroom, at the negotiating table, or intervening to prevent a lawsuit in the first place, the Bachara Group team works to bring your matter to a close as quickly and advantageously as possible, so you can get back to business.
Another advantage is our encyclopedic industry knowledge. At BCLG, we don’t just know construction law; we know the construction industry as well. Whether it involves industrial, infrastructure, hospitality, healthcare, commercial, government or residential construction, our lawyers bring a powerful combination of firsthand construction knowledge and courtroom experience to your case.
Our industry background includes diverse field experience and education in construction. In addition to being Board Certified in Construction Law, founding partner Chip Bachara is a licensed general contractor with a degree in Building Construction from the University of Florida. He and Todd MacLeod — formerly a general contractor who owned his own business, as well as a construction project manager — both have extensive experience in residential and commercial construction, including management of multi-million-dollar building projects. And Chip, Todd, and Tracy Valente have all focused on construction law throughout their legal careers.
That extensive knowledge of the industry allows us to get up to speed and address your needs quickly and with confidence. We are already familiar with the terminology, and we intimately understand the relationships among the various players on each project. With few exceptions, that means a short learning curve, exceptional responsiveness and prompt action on your behalf.
