Real Estate Development and Transactions

Our development team provides strategic representation through every phase of a project, from concept to completion. We offer a full complement of services in site acquisition, land use, tax structuring, financing, construction, leasing, and disposition—and the flexibility to select specific services on an as-needed basis.

Engaging a legal team that can handle all of the moving parts of a development transaction saves time and money. Our attorneys have played leading roles in development projects nationwide and have the experience to anticipate potential obstacles and support clients with results-oriented solutions that keep even the most complex project on track.

Our Real Estate Development and Transactions Group includes teams dedicated to construction, leasing, mixed-use development and condominiums, tax, and zoning and land use.

Experience 

  • We represented a major telecommunications company in developing its 1.2 million-square-foot headquarters building. The project ranged from complex lease and tenant fit-out negotiations to assistance with the purchase of specialty components, including a four-story video wall and a two-story solid glass staircase.
  • We represented a national retailer in lease negotiations for 40 build-to-suit stores and self-developed sites, and advised the operator of its sister stores in several lease negotiations, including a transaction with another retailer on an 80,000-square-foot, self-developed combined store.
  • We serve as real estate counsel on regional mass transit light rail project initiatives.
