Hannah M. Tyson primarily practices in construction law, while also practicing in the areas of commercial litigation and property damage litigation. Her practice is dedicated primarily to the representation of developers, general contractors, and subcontractors in construction defect litigation. Due to the complex nature of construction defect litigation involving dozens of parties such as homeowners’ associations, condominium associations, developers, architects, engineers, general contractors, and subcontractors, Ms. Tyson is experienced in managing large construction project file discovery, extensive fact and expert witness depositions, motions for summary judgment, and motions challenging expert testimony.
Ms. Tyson has represented numerous high-rise condominium developers in multimillion dollar cases. While representing developers, Ms. Tyson has gained experienced in coordinating case strategy with the client and in-house counsel, as well as the client’s private counsel. In addition to developers, Ms. Tyson also represents various subcontractors throughout the state of Florida including stucco and waterproofing subcontractors on high-rise condominiums and residential communities including townhomes and single-family homes. Ms. Tyson also has experience litigating cases involving owner controlled or contractor controlled wrap insurance policies (OCIP and CCIP), commercial general liability policies, and excess policies, and the effects such policies have on resolving litigation.
As a ninth generation Floridian, Ms. Tyson has seen firsthand the continuing growth and development in the state of Florida. While growing up, Ms. Tyson also had the opportunity to learn about the construction industry from the inside out while working as an office assistant at her grandparents’ custom home building company in Melbourne, Florida. While Florida will always be home, she also loves to travel both stateside and internationally. Ms. Tyson is also an avid runner, whether she’s training for her next destination half marathon race, or running all over St. Petersburg with her rescue pup, Bruce.
