Practice Area: Real Estate Development

Real Estate Development

Many business transactions include the sale, tax-free exchange or mortgage of real property as a component of the transaction. Our real estate attorneys work with the firm’s business attorneys to achieve the client’s objectives in these matters. Similarly many estate planning transactions and estate and trust administration matters involve real estate issues, and our Real Estate Practice Group provides needed assistance in these areas as well.

The firm’s real estate practice includes commercial and multi-family residential real estate and timberland transactions. Our attorneys draft mortgage instruments, leases, restrictive covenants, and other documents related to both commercial and multi-family residential real estate transactions. We assist our clients in responding to the challenges and opportunities of the real estate markets, often utilizing innovative and sophisticated approaches in order to meet our clients’ objectives.

In addition to our standard commercial loan closing services, we have a robust government-guaranteed loan closing practice (SBA and USDA loans). Because government-guaranteed lending is a specialized type of lending, it is particularly important for those types of loans to be closed by lawyers –like ours– well-versed in the requirements that must be satisfied to preserve the government guaranty for the benefit of the bank.

We also handle construction loans, timberland transactions, condemnation proceedings, planning and zoning matters, and advise clients on landlord-tenant issues, foreclosures, and a variety of other real property matters.
