Real Estate Law

In the real estate industry, time and money are both of the essence. Parties involved in large-scale residential and commercial real estate developments can little afford the delays and potential financial instability caused by legal uncertainty.

We have the substantial experience commonly found at larger firms; at the same time, our local roots and on-the-ground presence provide us with an unmatched understanding of the contours of the local real estate industry and its interplay with state and local bureaucracy. This allows us to provide a full range of transactional and litigation services to clients throughout the region, including:

  • Landowners
  • Developers
  • Homebuyers and sellers
  • Commercial property owners
  • Commercial landlords and tenants
  • Real estate agents and brokers

This allows us to work effectively to strengthen our clients' financial bottom line, whether they are involved in a real estate transaction or face the prospect of litigation.
