We have extensive experience counseling clients through sophisticated real estate transactions and operations, both regionally and throughout the United States. Our real estate team has guided clients through numerous market cycles and is adept at identifying and mitigating risks. We are committed to supporting clients efficiently at all stages of a transaction: drafting letters of intent; negotiating agreements; structuring ownership vehicles; participating in due diligence – including zoning; title and survey review; and closing and document execution.
Our real estate clients are a diverse group, and include owner-users, investors, real estate companies, developers, ground lessors and lessees, landlords and tenants, condominium associations, lenders and property management companies. The real estate matters we typically handle involve office buildings, apartment complexes, retail centers, senior living communities, self-storage facilities, single family home subdivisions, and industrial, warehouse and manufacturing facilities.
Our team frequently coordinates with our firm’s Tax attorneys, who are skilled assessors of transaction-related tax risks and have substantial experience structuring tax-deferred property exchanges. We also routinely work with our Business attorneys to advise clients on the most effective ownership structures. When needed, we team with our Litigation colleagues to resolve real estate-related disputes, especially landlord-tenant issues.
