We advise on all areas of commercial real estate: sales and acquisitions, leasing and development, borrowing and lending, complex litigation and appeals, bankruptcy and reorganization. Whether our firm is called upon to negotiate a real estate contract or to advise on the ownership, operation, leasing or financing of commercial real property, we prove time and again that we know how to leverage and protect our client’s position at every turn. Our lawyers negotiate and close billions of dollars of purchase, sale and leasing transactions for developed and undeveloped real property, including industrial, office, multi-family apartment, retail stores, shopping centers, and hotel and casino projects. We represent both landlords and tenants in lease agreements and disputes, including the enforcement of rights and remedies following defaults. We are experienced in all areas of common-interest communities, including condominiums and planned unit developments.

We also serve as local counsel for out-of-state lenders in connection with complexly structured financing transactions for casino, energy and master planned community projects.
