We will review your transaction, and can provide timely assistance in any  real estate deal or syndication. We also provide advice in a variety of areas, to include condemnation, easements, and zoning issues, and can do so in such a way that will allow you to easily navigate your real estate transaction.  We have extensive practice in various commercial transactions, including financing, title examination, complex title insurance/indemnity, land use, construction, distressed assets, and green building to closings matters.  We can assist you in property acquisitions for residential, commercial and mixed-use developments.  We provide leasing assistance and drafting for both landlords and tenants.  Our firm delivers a full spectrum of commercial and residential real estate legal remedies to our clients locally, regionally and nationally.
