Tampa, Florida, January 2, 2018 – Trent Cotney, P.A. Construction Law Group, a national law firm for construction, specialty trades and OSHA law, is pleased to announce their new name, Cotney Construction Law, LLP. This change reflects the continued growth and commitment of the law firm to the construction industry. Led by Trent Cotney, the firm is dedicated to a progressive, redefined legal operation that truly cares about the customers and industries they serve.  

The new name and look of the firm is highlighted by attorneys who have extensive backgrounds in construction.  The firm provides a full range of services including defending contractors on construction defect claims, prosecuting lien and bond law claims, defending OSHA citations, contractor licensing defense and bid protests. With lawyers who are licensed contractors, the Cotney team understands construction — not because it is written in a book, but from real-world knowledge that allows their team of lawyers to provide clients with both legal and practical advice.

“We have lawyers barred in nine different states. We already help contractors across the country with OSHA claims and defense,” stated Trent Cotney, principal of Cotney Construction Law. “Ongoing legal risk is a huge problem for contractors. Whether it is around safety, contracts, employees or immigration; contractors need to not only have a lawyer they can trust but a proactive legal program that eliminates a majority of the risk before anything happens.” 

The name of the firm, Cotney Construction Law, is new but Trent Cotney has nearly two decades of construction law experience.  All told, the legal team at Cotney has over 100 years of experience.  Every day that number is growing as new lawyers join the firm.

“There is a huge need for legal, risk and safety services. We truly believe that working together as an industry, we can help contractors and professionals develop programs that limit risk and potentially negate legal actions. The team of lawyers we have are part of the culture of the industry,” concluded Cotney. “I am very proud of this team and our new name signifies the scope and depth of the legal services and experience that we are committed to providing.”
