Our real estate litigators handle real estate matters including commercial lease disputes, land use litigation, mortgage foreclosures, title insurance defense, construction litigation, joint venture disputes, bankruptcy-related matters and general contractual disputes. Our land use lawyers have successfully litigated denials of municipal, county and state permits and approvals and also have defended the validity of permits and approvals issued to our clients when challenged by third parties.
In landlord–tenant disputes, our litigators handle dispossess and damage claims brought by landlord clients as well as defend tenant clients in landlord-initiated suits. Our construction specialists represent real estate clients in claims-under-construction contracts and in disputes with architects and other design professionals. Our bankruptcy litigators have successfully represented landlords in numerous tenant bankruptcy situations and our foreclosure practitioners are adept at foreclosing on mortgages and other liens.
Perhaps most importantly, our litigation experience can facilitate resolution of disputes before the parties resort to litigation. Our counseling during the disagreement stage pre-litigation can achieve settlements on terms favorable to our clients, thereby avoiding the significant costs of litigation.
