Real Estate Law
The Firm's real estate practice is full-service and national in scope. Our real estate attorneys have many years of experience representing owners, landlords, tenants, operators, developers, lenders and investors in a wide range of real estate transactions, property law and related services. The spectrum of real estate assets in which we have experience is broad and includes the purchase, sale, restructure, financing, development and licensing of commercial and residential buildings and property. In addition, we represent local, national and international tenants and landlords in commercial and retail leasing transactions across the country.
Our real estate lawyers are routinely involved in all aspects of the sale, acquisition, leasing and financing of real estate. We frequently engage in a broad range of transactions through which real estate investments are structured and financed.
We assist clients interested in developing real estate by structuring and organizing general and limited partnerships and other entities to acquire and operate real property.
The Firm has enjoyed notable success in obtaining state and local government incentives to assist clients who are contemplating relocating or expanding their existing facilities in other localities. The procurement of such incentives and benefits is just one of the value added services we are able to provide our real estate clients. We also assist clients in obtaining construction, term, conduit, REMIC and leasehold mortgages. Should the need arise, our attorneys also are experienced in real estate workouts, advising clients on strategies for handling distressed real estate and in resolving disputes between co-owners of real estate assets. The Firm has an active and well-recognized commercial leasing practice. Our attorneys have represented tenants and landlords in the leasing, subleasing and disposition of commercial space on a regional, national and international basis. Recognizing that real estate expense constitutes approximately one-quarter of an entity’s overhead, our clients rely on us for practical as well as legal advice in connection with the leasing and disposition of their space.
Whether it is the purchase, sale, leasing, subleasing, disposition, financing or operation of real estate, or the planning and procurement of state and local development incentives and benefits, the Firm’s real estate attorneys have the ability and expertise to turn our clients’ real estate ventures into successful and lucrative transactions.
