Handling All Aspects of Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Commercial real estate practice impacts multiple areas of law, including environmental regulations, banking, taxation, bankruptcy, land use, and zoning. We will take due diligence to ensure your transaction does not come with an unwelcome surprise.

Our attorneys have a broad knowledge of all aspects of commercial real estate. When a specific transaction requires a subject matter expert, we have a network of highly skilled professionals to call upon.

Title Problems

An issue with a title could dramatically increase the cost of a commercial real estate transaction. We will ensure that the property involved in your transaction has a clean title or that you are aware of any potential title problems before you commit to a transaction.

Zoning and Land Use

It is fundamental to ensure you can use the property you buy for its intended purpose. Our attorneys will assist you in investigating all potentially applicable land use issues to confirm that you can create your vision on the property and draft a purchase agreement that acknowledges appropriate contingencies.

Why You Should Work with a Commercial Real Estate Attorney

Hiring the right attorney when you are considering a business purchase, sale, or refinance can be a challenge. Many are looking for an attorney who has the experience of working with transactions of all kinds, who has guided all types and sizes of business in commercial transactions, but who may not charge the rates that are often seen at the larger firms.
