The firm represents buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants, and brokers and developers in the full range of real estate transactions. We use our insight and experience to offer creative solutions to the complex issues that so often arise in any transaction. Our real estate practice encompasses all the issues of development, construction, purchasing, selling and leasing of real property.
Our real estate practice includes the preparation and negotiation of all types of commercial and residential leases, including office, industrial, residential, shopping center and other store leasing, single
user and multi-tenanted buildings and mixed-use building leases. The firm’s attorneys have experience representing a wide range of landlords and tenants, from the independent retail store or business operator to major institutions, regional and national businesses and landlords. Mr. Crabtree frequently lectures on Real Estate and Landlord-Tenant matters, and his recognized proficiency in litigating real estate issues gives the firm added insight in drafting so as to minimize risk and unexpected pitfalls.

Our Real Estate team advises clients on the structuring and use of debt and equity in the financing and ownership of real estate. We represent both the users of capital, which include developers and long-term owners of real estate assets, and the sources of capital, including lenders and equity investors, on projects across the country. Our experience extends to most all asset types, including office buildings, retail centers, warehouse and industrial properties and single family and multi-family residential development. We provide representation after completion of construction, including on leasing, refinancing, sales, and 1031 deferred exchanges.
As the number of participants in a transaction grows, so too does the need for experienced joint venture and fund counsel. Our attorneys work closely with the principals and their various partners to structure their legal and business relationship through the lifecycle of their venture.
