Stuart Sobel, Shareholder
PRIMARY FOCUS & EXPERIENCE
Mr. Sobel has been trying and arbitrating construction and commercial disputes all over the country for 45 years. His substantial experience in the construction sector derives from his representation, over the decades, of the full spectrum of construction professionals: developers, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers on every type of project: infrastructure, stadiums, performing art centers, courthouses and hospitals, tunnels and roadways, high-rise structures including residential and office, court houses and even single-family homes. Understanding that construction disputes are often technical and complex, Mr. Sobel focuses on assisting clients with innovative problem-solving strategies to resolve disputes efficiently. He has developed a particular expertise in representing structural steel fabricators and erectors.
Mr. Sobel has tried and arbitrated scores of cases to verdict, judgment, and award, which, over the years, have included tort claims, civil rights actions, and common law unfair competition. His broad trial experience, coupled with his more than fifteen years as a Florida Supreme Court certified mediator and more than 30 years as an American Arbitration Association neutral arbitrator, enables him to counsel his clients at every stage of a dispute, guiding them toward the best possible resolution. By preparing disputes for final resolution at trial or arbitration, he has accomplished favorable settlements of his clients’ claims. He prides himself in achieving cost-efficient, yet fair, resolutions.
Though he specializes and limits his practice primarily to construction-related disputes, Mr. Sobel serves the full range of his clients’ needs, including commercial disputes, which are often encountered in the context of complex construction projects. He has been privileged to participate in the resolution of disputes arising out of the most iconic, most challenging construction projects in the United States.
