Our attorneys serve a wide range of clients in real estate matters, including owners, investors, landlords/tenants and developers of office buildings, apartment buildings, shopping centers, commercial and single family developments. Our real estate attorneys handle acquisition, development, financing and leasing of property with careful consideration of the tax implications of each transaction.
From the acquisition of raw land to the completion of the project, we serve the client through the organizational, tax structuring, building and regulatory approval processes. We conduct due diligence, prepare restrictive covenants, reciprocal easements, ground leases, property management agreements, construction documents and other development agreements required for the project. Our attorneys routinely review zoning regulations and ordinances, environmental matters, obtain title searches, negotiate title insurance commitments, obtain surveys, negotiate transfer documents and conduct closings. We have handled the disposition of various properties, including warehouses, offices, retail, residential, apartments, condominiums, and specialty properties like multiple-state restaurants as well as sales and leasebacks of commercial properties.
We prepare and negotiate term sheets, sale agreements and closing documentation. Our broad based experience in real estate and finance transactions and background in tax and other related areas gives us a significant advantage in representing our clients through the entire scope of a project. We also provide creative tax planning and can handle like-kind, tax-deferred exchange transactions.
