Built on Trust

Practically every transaction involves real property, which is why McDonald Carano has been involved in shaping Nevada’s real estate industry for decades. Our firm’s longevity and practical experience in the real estate industry, both in Nevada and beyond, distinguish us from other firms in the state. We have been involved in practically every area of real estate. As a result, we serve a diverse clientele that includes real estate owners, investors, businesses, developers, builders, construction companies, lenders, hotel operators, resort operators, retailers, contractors, architects, design professionals, brokers, agents, homeowners associations, property management companies, insurance companies, and individuals.

“Our experience working with McDonald Carano has been excellent. The firm offers strength in depth and has a very broad scope of expertise.”

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.

McDonald Carano also represents lenders and borrowers in secured financing transactions. Our team negotiates and prepares commercial loan documents, provides legal opinions to lenders, and counsels clients regarding loan foreclosures and workouts, including receivership actions and actions involving loan guarantors. 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.

• Acquisitions and dispositions.
• Entity formation, joint ventures and partnerships.
• Development projects.
• Lending and financing agreements.
