Commercial Real Estate
Our diverse real estate client base allows us to see commercial real estate from every perspective. In addition to developers, we represent banks and large commercial lenders; investors, purchasers and sellers of all forms of commercial property; general contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers; architects and engineers; and management companies.
Working closely together, our real estate and construction lawyers handle contract formation, on-site disputes, lien work, and arbitration and litigation of construction disputes. Our clients include owners, developers, architects, general contractors, subcontractors and materialmen.
Water and Environmental Issues
We are involved in both the planning and adversarial aspects of water law, performing services for both private and public entities. We assist our clients in addressing discrete environmental problems, including environmental assessments and hazardous waste issues. In addition to counseling clients on these issues, we represent clients in state and federal administrative and court proceedings.
Our firm has a long history in the area of land use and planning, representing landowners and developers before planning and zoning commissions and city councils, and, in some cases, representing government entities. Our practice includes resolution of land use issues through lobbying for legislative changes, arbitration and litigation.
