Real Estate and Construction Litigation

The Real Estate & Construction Litigation Team at Quarles is a large, multidisciplinary group of experienced attorneys who regularly meet to discuss industry issues, client concerns, and new legal developments and to collaborate on educational topics and presentations for themselves and their clients. 

Real Estate Disputes

Where real estate disputes are concerned, timing is everything. Transactions typically occur within a short window of opportunity, with disagreements needing to be resolved quickly and decisively. Our team has years of solid, consistent experience helping clients both large and small. We understand that fast, effective action can minimize the costs and risks associated with real estate disputes—and that quality legal counsel should never be sacrificed in the interest of speed. Our seasoned attorneys help clients determine their objectives, identify appropriate options, and pursue positive results, with all of the tools and knowledge at our disposal.

We represent buyers, sellers, and other parties engaged in virtually any form of real estate transaction, including individuals, real estate investment trusts (REITs), developers, real estate agencies and brokers, investors, associations, builders, and many others. Our attorneys are equally aggressive in pursuing all of our clients' goals, whether as defendant's or plaintiff's counsel. A key element in our representation is our well-earned reputation as trial lawyers; we have argued cases in courtrooms and alternative-dispute resolution proceedings from coast-to-coast. This reputation can play in our clients' favor, as some opposing counsel may choose to negotiate favorable settlements rather than face our attorneys in court.

Construction Disputes

We understand the issues and complexities surrounding major building projects. We represent parties involved in every aspect of the construction industry and on both sides of the negotiating table. We also work closely with creditors and debtors in construction-related bankruptcies and insolvencies. We regularly review, draft, and help negotiate clear, understandable contracts in order to minimize the likelihood of confusion or disagreements. When disputes do arise,we work with our clients and opposing parties to reach favorable resolutions that preserve key relationships while minimizing negative publicity. When necessary, we have a team of experienced trial lawyers to try your case through verdict and appeal.

We speak your language—with strong backgrounds in real estate, finance and contract law; in-depth knowledge of local regulations and legislation; and real-world experience in related areas of engineering and construction management, we help clients negotiate more effectively the often thorny path toward dispute resolution.

As part of a full-service firm with offices around the country, we can also draw on the legal and industry knowledge of attorneys in nearly every area of legal practice. When deal-threatening disputes arise, our clients know that we have the resources and the experience to help them reach their objectives.
