West Palm Beach Golf Course and Topgolf

The developer tapped to lead the $86 million renovation and redevelopment of a city-owned golf course in West Palm Beach is being sued by its own lawyer.

Perry & Taylor P.A. filed suit this month in Palm Beach County Circuit Court against WPB Golf Links, doing building as American Links, alleging the company failed to pay more than $185,000 in legal bills, according to the Palm Beach Post.

American Links’ project included refurbishing the city’s 196-acre golf course at 7001 Parker Avenue, bringing a Topgolf facility along with apartments and a possible hotel component on the southwestern corner of the course.

The development firm is led by E. Anthony Wilson and Raymon R. Finch III, who are tied to Seagate Realty Group.

The legal bills allegedly date to back to September 2016. So far, the law firm claims it’s only received a $10,000 check, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Wilson said the dispute is “typical” and will not affect the project. “As usual these things take a lot of time,” he told the newspaper. “I don’t foresee any obstacles in the way of this project. We look forward to starting on it as soon as possible.”

Mike Burman, who filed the complaint on behalf of Perry & Taylor, said it is “not typical between a client and a lawyer for the client not to pay the lawyer at all for his work.” [Palm Beach Post] – Amanda Rabines
