Our commercial real estate litigation attorneys have over a hundred years of combined experience, along with the determination and ability to represent client’s interests effectively in even the most complex cases. We often do our best work when litigation is avoided. We are strong proponents of alternative dispute resolution, especially mediation. However, when litigation is necessary, we have the talent and diligence that are essential to obtain desired results in the courtroom.
We have represented hundreds of commercial landlords and business tenants over the years in various types of disputes, including rent collection, eviction, property damage, liens, easements and access, bankruptcy and vendor matters. We can assist you in negotiation and drafting lease modifications and amendments, and finding creative and cost-effective solutions for your issues.
Real Estate Disputes
We routinely represent lenders and property owners in a variety of matters including:
- Lien priority disputes
- Boundary disputes
- Easements and access issues
- Mechanics’ and materialman’s liens
- Restrictive covenants
- Contract disputes
- Bankruptcy claims
- Judgment enforcement
These disputes require a deep knowledge of real estate law and litigation, a flexible approach, and skill in devising creative solutions.
Loan Workouts & Debt Collection
We understand that in most cases, the goal is to avoid foreclosure and receive payment from debtors. We will draft loan modification agreements and design repayment arrangements. In complex cases, we will negotiate with counsel for other creditors and craft a workout plan together. If a workout plan cannot be consummated, our lawyers will aggressively pursue litigation strategies to maximize recovery.
Recovery of Collateral
Should a debtor default, we are experienced at recovering all types of collateral including industrial equipment, motor vehicles, mobile homes and personal property. To minimize costs to clients, we use our team of skilled paralegals whenever possible.
