Collaborative conception.  Decisive action.

Construction, Property Rights, and Condominium/HOA Litigation

The construction industry and condominium/HOA associations are both highly regulated by various state laws and local ordinances. Similarly, property rights are often determined based on arcane and ancient legal precepts. At Trauth Law Firm we are experienced with litigating these highly specialized areas of law successfully on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants.

Significant Results

ADF International v. Suffolk Construction Company, Inc., et al. (Eleventh Judicial Circuit, Miami, Fla.) (2017 – 2020).

Mr. Trauth was part of a trial team that secured a $10.54 million settlement for ADF International, which fabricated and erected the structural steel for the Virgin train station and 2 MiamiCentral office tower, from the project’s general contractor, developer, and design professionals. The lawsuit alleged nonpayment and severe project management failures and settled after 10 days of trial.

IconBrickell Master Association, Inc., et al. v. IconBrickell, LLC, et al. (Eleventh Judicial Circuit, Miami, Fla.) (2014 – 2019).

Mr. Trauth represented the IconBrickell Master Association along with two tower associations in a construction defect dispute against the project’s developer; various contractors and sub-contractors; as well as the architect and other design professionals. Damages were estimated to exceed $25 million for all three associations. After Mr. Trauth implemented a targeted and assertive litigation strategy, the matter was resolved very favorably on the eve of trial.

Vista Golf, LLC v. Vista Royale Property Owners, et al. (Nineteenth Judicial Circuit, Vero Beach, Fla.) (2008 – 2013).

Mr. Trauth represented a condominium association in dispute with a commercial landowner who sought to invalidate restrictive covenants related to property adjacent to the condominium so that an industrial park could be constructed. At the resulting trial, Mr. Trauth convinced the jury to find in favor of the association on all counts and defeated the landowner’s appeal to the Fourth District Court of Appeal as well.
