Gary Brown

Gary Brown has practiced law since 1995 in state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout Florida, where he has gained extensive experience both in and out of the courtroom, and has conducted numerous trials and arbitrations to successful conclusion. He focuses his practice on general commercial and business litigation, handling both complex and routine matters for clients with substantial experience in construction-related matters, including: contract drafting and negotiation; dispute resolution; Florida's Construction Lien Law; payment and performance bond claims; construction and design defect claims; delay, inefficiency and acceleration claims; public procurement/bid protests; and insurance/coverage disputes. 

Gary's construction litigation experience has involved the successful representation of large institutional owners, municipalities, general contractors and major subcontractors in the prosecution and defense of multimillion-dollar wrongful termination, construction defect, design defect, and insurance coverage claims, as well as bid protests on multimillion-dollar public works projects. His commercial litigation experience has involved the successful representation of privately held companies in shareholder derivative suits over corporate restructuring and sale of company shares; and a local title company in the defense of multi-million dollar claims by a national institutional lender for an alleged loan-kiting scheme.

Gary's representation also includes assisting municipalities and local governments in all aspects of public work projects, from writing IFBs, RFPs, RFQs, and construction and design contracts, to carefully navigating through often difficult ongoing project disputes that jeopardize the proper and timely completion of the work, to successful project close-out.

He is Board Certified by The Florida Bar in Construction Law. In 2016, he published a book with the Daily Business Review (an ALM Media company) titled Florida Construction Defect Litigation.
