Our Real Estate and Development team provides comprehensive counsel and innovative advice in every phase of real estate development and in every facet of the commercial real estate industry.
We offer a complete range of services regularly representing buyers, sellers, developers, investors, lenders, landlords, and tenants.
Our lawyers have the experience, acumen, and problem solving expertise to assist clients with their real estate related needs no matter how simple or sophisticated those needs may be. We assist our clients with as little or as much support as they may need whether it be identifying and implementing complex financing or tax savings strategies or the conventional purchase of a building to be occupied by its new owner.
Acquisitions and Dispositions
We negotiate, structure, and document purchase and sale transactions, limited partnership agreements, limited liability company operating agreements and other joint venture arrangements, and other ancillary property related documentation related with such transactions.
Development and Procurement of Incentives
We represent developers assisting with zoning, from site acquisition, incentives application and execution from TIFs to property tax abatements and other pre-development transactions to the lease-up, construction, or financing of the real estate project.
We have experience negotiating and documenting every conceivable type of financing product associated with real estate, including property acquisitions, pre- development and construction costs, short-term bridge or interim loans to permanent loan vehicles, workouts and foreclosures.
We represent both landlords and tenants in the negotiation and documentation of commercial leases related to any real estate use (retail, flex, medical, office, and more) or form (gross leases, NNN leases, build-to-suit leases, ground leases, sale-leasebacks, and more)
