Real Estate
Success in the real estate industry doesn’t hinge on any single aspect of a multi-million dollar deal – like location, for example – but rather from the thorough and methodical management of every detail in a complex transaction, from land purchase to obtaining entitlements to financings to negotiating contracts with vendors, and everything in-between.

Throughout our firm's history, we have represented participants across the real estate industry: lenders and borrowers, developers and contractors, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and investors, owners, tenants, and landlords, and others. Whether they're buying or selling property, making investments, constructing commercial, industrial, and residential buildings, or leasing out space, clients rely on our comprehensive and multidisciplinary advice to ensure that they meet their business and strategic objectives.

We guide our clients on eminent domain issues, entitlements, land use, and financing across the country. We assist them on joint ventures, 1031 exchanges, tax planning, and agreements with architects and engineers. We draft contracts and leases, negotiate loans and non-traditional financing, and establish a wide variety of businesses and partnerships, from single-project entities to ventures structured around long-term returns from multiple developments.

In addition, because we help industry participants respond to virtually every type of formal and informal dispute they encounter, clients know they can count on us to avoid unnecessary cost, disruption, and delay with timely and effective solutions to challenges and claims, often before they develop into litigation. On behalf of clients, we have successfully resolved lease and contract challenges, construction defects and mechanic's lien issues, landlord-tenant and condominium association-developer disputes, entitlement and land-use questions, partnership issues, disputes with governing bodies, title company claims, and other contentious matters.
