Since its inception, the firm has maintained an active real estate practice both regionally and locally. Our firm provides a full range of services and we are experienced in handling complex real estate transactions. Our attorneys have substantial experience representing developers, lenders, buyers, and sellers with various types of properties including office, health care, retail, apartments, manufacturing, industrial, hotel, and mixed-use.
Members of the real estate practice group frequently handle commercial and residential closings, and advise clients with regard to acquisition, contract, sales, leasing, annexation, survey, easement, zoning, land use regulation, title, environmental, subdivision, financing and other development issues. In many transactions we are involved from the early stages of contract negotiation through the due diligence (including title, survey, and environmental issues), development, zoning, financing, construction, and leasing stages. We sometimes work alongside the tax attorneys in our firm particularly with respect to federal, state, and local incentive and tax issues. We believe our clients realize great benefits from our multi-disciplinary approach.
The commercial real estate practice group writes title insurance for First American Title Insurance Company which is one of the largest and best title insurance companies in the United States. The commercial real estate practice group also assists clients with foreclosure, collection, eviction, condemnation, and quiet title actions.
