Real estate is an important investment. Risk is involved when you purchase, develop, use or sell property for business, investment or personal purposes. You need an attorney who has experience with both the practical and legal aspects of real estate ownership and use.
Our real estate practice provides both transactional and litigation services for real estate clients ranging in size from large international corporations and banks, to mid-size private and public companies, to start-ups and individuals.
We help developers negotiate development agreements and construction contracts, land use laws and regulations, and eminent domain issues. We assist small businesses and individuals in acquiring and disposing of properties and we prosecute and defend mechanic’s lien matters. We also manage boundary, easement and title issues for our clients. In addition, we have represented both landlords and tenants in a wide variety of office, retail and industrial lease negotiations.
As another significant aspect of our real estate practice, we defend real estate brokers, agents, surveyors, title companies and other real estate professionals against a wide variety of professional liability (errors and omissions) claims.
