The Real Estate Group provides counsel on the full spectrum of real estate transactions, related environmental concerns and land use matters. We represent owners, operators, developers, investors and major tenants in real estate assignments that range from acquisition and development through financing and lease-up to syndication, securitization and ultimate disposition. Projects we handle are as diverse as apartment complexes, single-family and condominium housing developments, office buildings, recreational facilities, shopping centers, industrial facilities and raw land.
Our real estate lawyers work with regional and national developers, and provide these clients with transactional, due diligence and advisory services. Our development work includes counseling on land acquisition, entity selection and formation, tax strategies, redevelopment agreements, easements and condominiums. In addition, our developer clients rely on us to negotiate, document and close mezzanine, construction and permanent real estate loans and related transactions to help meet their business goals.
We also guide clients through the numerous transactional issues that arise in the management of real estate holdings, including leasing, acquiring, selling and financing a range of real estate assets and property portfolios.
No matter the task, as business lawyers first and foremost, we understand our clients' desire to “get the deal done.”
