We represent property owners, developers and local governments on matters relating to the development and use of land. Common issues and interests include economic development tools and tax incentives, the purchase and sale of real estate, annexation, zoning, land use and development.

We meet with local government legislatures, administrators and local boards and commissions regarding land use law, administrative and legislative zoning, lot splitting, subdivisions and development matters.

Our lawyers serve as counsel to lenders and borrowers involved in the financing of real estate projects throughout the region and nationwide. The value we bring to these clients stems from our decades of experience in lending transactions, combined with our commitment to providing efficient and cost-effective legal services. This deep experience we’ve gained by working on both sides of lending transactions means that we understand the market dynamics at play and the most critical compromise points.

We advise buyers and sellers in the structuring, negotiation, and closing of real estate purchase and sale transactions. Our lawyers guide our clients through every aspect of the transaction, including the preparation of all required documents and the formation of ownership and acquisition entities (e.g. LLCs and joint ventures). We work with our clients through any issues that may arise, from resolving title defects to addressing environmental concerns to generating tax-free exchanges.
