We assist in the purchase and sale of office buildings, apartment buildings, shopping centers, commercial and industrial use properties and other developed and undeveloped real property. We prepare commercial, office and residential leases, license agreements, management contracts and contracts for the construction, restoration and repair of buildings.
Our litigation department zealously represents our clients’ interests in all types of real estate matters, including brokerage and commission claims, construction contract disputes, construction defect disputes, easement disputes, commercial and residential landlord-tenant litigation, mortgage foreclosures, nuisance abatement actions, real estate ownership and partnership disputes, sales contract disputes and other environmental related cases. We assist our clients with regulatory compliance.
Our clients include owners, lessees and operators of commercial and residential property, and we have represented them in a broad spectrum of cases involving claims for personal injuries and property damage arising from incidents on their premises. Although these cases generally are predicated upon allegations of a dangerous or defective condition on the premises, the facts and circumstances giving rise to such claims are infinitely variable.
They include claims which range from negligent maintenance (malfunctioning elevators, inadequate lighting, broken steps, falling ceilings, improperly constructed roofs, windows, plumbing, and cooling systems, etc.) to inadequate security.
Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by individuals. - THOMAS JEFFERSON, letter to Colonel Van Meter, Apr. 27, 1781
