Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Real Estate, Land Use and Condemnation Litigation
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.
The Real Estate Litigation 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 every 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 defendants’ or plaintiffs’ 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.
We provide representation in the full range of real estate disputes, involving:
- Fraud and racketeering.
- Earnest money, escrow and deposits.
- Material non-disclosures.
- Unwinding agreements.
- Property development matters.
- Land use, zoning and easements.
- Commercial and industrial leases.
- Property management agreements.
- Title insurance.
As part of a full-service firm with eight 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.
