Our expertise extends across a range of practice areas and industry sectors where real estate is at the core of the transaction. We offer advice to help our clients capitalize on their opportunities, manage risk, and resolve disputes.
Our lawyers do more than keep pace with the evolving real estate market – we offer advice to help our clients capitalize on their opportunities, manage risk and resolve disputes.
Our clients rely on our understanding of the complexities of the market and transactional know-how to maximize value and assess the risks of their real estate projects. The practical advice we provide, based on our years of experience handling complex matters, assists our clients in making the informed legal and business decisions critical to their success.
Commercial deals move quickly and we work proactively with our clients to develop risk management strategies to avoid potential issues that can result in delays.
When contentious issues arise our goal is early resolution and the protection of our clients’ property assets, reputation and ongoing business relationships. The knowledge we have gained from dealing with a broad spectrum of disputes assists us in identifying and executing the best strategy to achieve our clients’ goals – whether pursuing or defending litigation or through alternate dispute resolution methods such as arbitration, mediation or negotiation.
We provide a broad range of legal services to financial institutions, real estate investment trusts (REITs), pension funds, hotels, utility companies, public sector and government entities, commercial property owners, investors, developers, commercial landlords and tenants, brokers, inspectors, appraisers and other real estate professionals.
