RealEstate

Virtually every business in every sector depends on real estate – whether that involves buying or leasing office, retail or industrial space for a business use, or a more involved model of investing and selling. Yet too many individuals fail to appreciate the issues and risks involved or assume that their business knowledge negates the necessity for real estate legal counsel.

The truth is that there is no such thing as a simple real estate matter, and the right real estate expertise can make the difference between a deal or relationship that will be problematic or deliver the greatest possible advantage.

Our Real Estate Practice Group is diverse, collaborative and client-centered. We work through every component of the process of buying, selling, financing, and leasing real estate to support clients with:

  • Lending and finance matters
  • Land use/zoning concerns
  • Negotiation, drafting and review of contracts
  • Sales, acquisitions and development of property
  • Leasing and resolution of lease-related disputes
  • Workouts & enforcement
  • Management
  • Construction
  • Easements
  • Document drafting and review for closings

Equally important, we strive to understand what drives our clients and their businesses, in order to provide tailored, practical counsel. Our approach does not depend on the size of any given client but on each client’s goals, big or small. By considering all aspects of any real estate matter, we help clients achieve their goals with efficiency. From proactive guidance and strategic counsel to contract review and revision to post-transaction issues that arise, we are full-service, value-driven and trusted advisors.

Every member of our responsive, engaged team brings deep experience to the practice, including backgrounds in land use, construction, leasing and investment. We support commercial developers from concept to closing, whether they are building a shopping center or a thousand-acre multi-sport facility.

In short: Our team is results-driven and detail-oriented in a way that empowers our clients to pursue and achieve their real estate goals with confidence.
