Commercial Real Estate

The lawyers of our Commercial Real Estate practice assist clients with all aspects of commercial real estate transactions, including negotiating, drafting and reviewing complex, integrated documents for the acquisition, financing, leasing, development, exchange and sale of commercial properties. Our practice involves all commercial real estate uses, including retail, office, multi-family, mixed-use, condominium, industrial, and healthcare. Our clients range in size and scope from the local, entrepreneurial developer to the national, institutional investor.

Our clients benefit from our lawyers’ extensive knowledge of the business and financial issues underlying commercial real estate transactions and their understanding of the commercial real estate market. Our lawyers maintain collegial relationships with other lawyers and businesspeople in the commercial real estate space, which we believe allows our lawyers to work collaboratively with the other side of the transaction to achieve a common goal. Nonetheless, our lawyers remain advocates for our clients’ positions, bringing to bear experience, expertise and creativity to ensure that our clients are well-represented.
