Monique Cardenas wrote an article titled “How Green Construction Can Leed to Green Litigation” published in The Magazine of the Construction Association of South Florida Construction ink!’s Winter 2014 edition. The article emphasizes the development of green construction including green building code standards and green building codes and how they have lead to the emergence of litigation.


Michael A. Branca and Lori Ann Lange co-authored a chapter in a book entitled Inside the Minds: Litigation Strategies for Government Contracts, published by Aspatore Books from Thomson Rueters (c) 2014. The chapter titled Risks and Strategies in Government Contract Litigation provides an overview of contract disputes between a contractor and the federal government, explores a contractor’s motives for filing a dispute, the most common subjects of government contract disputes, and the importance of understanding the provisions and clauses of a government contract and the procedures outlined in the Contract Disputes Act and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) when it comes to filing a claim against the government. The chapter also addresses the differences between litigating with the government versus litigating a private party and the alternatives to government contract litigation.
