About

Provided by Dickinson Wright PLLC

Dickinson Wright has long been recognized as a premier firm in the real estate transactions and real estate litigation practice areas. The real estate practice focuses upon real estate acquisition and development transactions. Dickinson Wright's real estate practice group represents many of the State's largest commercial developers, including the largest national and regional shopping center developers active in the Phoenix marketplace, as well as a number of municipalities in connection with land use-related matters.

Two aspects of the firm's real estate practice in Arizona deal in areas that go beyond commonplace acquisition, disposition and financing transactions. They are:

Eminent Domain and Land Use Litigation and Consulting: We regularly advice clients regarding pre-condemnation planning, project reconfigurations and similar matters resulting from the announcement, planning, or construction of various public works projects.

Economic Incentive Agreements: We provide advice to property owners and developers regarding a variety of economic incentive agreements. These agreements are often incorporated in pre-annexation development agreements, economic incentive development agreements, public-private agreements, Government Property Lease Excise Tax (GPLET) agreements, and other forms of agreements that provide incentives for future development.
