Adams and Reese Construction Attorney Jim Dickson Co-Authors Chapter in ABA-Endorsed Book on Subcontracting

5/1/2014

Adams and Reese Partner Jim Dickson, Board Certified in Construction Law by The Florida Bar, has co-authored a chapter in a new book titled Construction Subcontracting: A Comprehensive Practical and Legal Guide, which has been published by the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry.

The book was released two weeks ago at the ABA Forum’s annual meeting in New Orleans. This new book discusses numerous issues that arise between the many parties in a typical construction project from the perspective of a subcontractor or a party dealing with subcontractors. 

Dickson’s chapter focused on payment issues under contract terms, statutory rights and practical considerations. Dickson, who has been practicing law since 1978, was part of a national team of experienced construction attorneys who worked together to create this new publication.

Dickson focuses his practice on construction law, environmental law and commercial litigation, representing owners, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers in all aspects of construction law, including bidding, contract preparation and negotiation, surety bonds, claim resolution, mediation, arbitration, and litigation. He further represents clients in a broad array of environmental matters concerning hazardous substances, contaminated property, Brownfields, asbestos, RCRA, CERCLA, and toxic torts. 

Dickson has been recognized in Florida Super Lawyers® (by Thomson Reuters) 2006-2014, as well as Best Lawyers® (by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners) 2009-2014. An accomplished author and lecturer, Dickson has written and spoken extensively on construction, bond and lien law as well as environmental law. As an adjunct professor at Stetson University School of Law, Dickson teaches Environmental Hazards Associated with Real Property.
