We frequently act on behalf of clients in litigation arising from various real estate transactions. Particularly in recent years, we have represented both lenders and developers in disputes over the terms of financing commitments or agreements, as well as both lessors and lessees in disagreements regarding the interpretation of lease provisions in rapidly changing market conditions.
The variety of real estate disputes in which our firm has become involved is broad. We have represented:
- Landlords and commercial tenants involved in leasing disputes
- General and limited partners in real estate partnership disputes, both in arbitration and in litigation
- Property owners, in negotiations and litigation where the government has refused to pay a fair amount for the taking of the client's property
- Individuals, partnerships and corporations in eminent domain actions
Because our firm was built on a "business" base, we pay close attention to how any litigation, and in particular real estate litigation, fits into the economics of the transactions in which our clients are involved. Often our trial lawyers are able to identify creative business solutions to real estate litigation problems before they erupt into full-blown litigation.
