Small Business

Overview

We excel across the full range of real estate matters and we are particularly aggressive in commercial real estate litigation.

Success in the real estate industry depends in large part on forces outside your control. Economic booms and busts, rising and falling interest rates, and even an atmosphere of optimism or pessimism can mean success or failure for a project. Or a company.

Our real estate practice can help you build a strong foundation for your business to take advantage of (or withstand) market fluctuations. We handle deals ranging from $5 million to several billions of dollars. And our large, diverse team of real estate lawyers are supported by a deep bench of legal professionals with experience in public and private financing, environmental law, tax law, corporate transactions, bankruptcy, and litigation.

Our clients include:

  • developers
  • entrepreneurial real estate companies and individuals
  • financial institutions
  • homebuilders
  • hotel, hospitality, and leisure companies
  • housing authorities
  • landlords and tenants
  • multifamily owners and managers
  • office building owners
  • private equity funds
  • public, private, and nonprofit companies
  • REITs
  • retail, outlet and shopping center owners
  • retail end users and franchisees

We understand the market, and we understand the law. Whether you are finalizing a multimillion dollar transaction or closing a single-property deal, we can help you spot the pitfalls, develop a strategy, evaluate financing and capital sources, and seize the (right) opportunity.
