Real Estate Litigation

Real estate disputes — whether they involve purchase and sale contracts, commercial leases, design and construction defects, property insurance, or joint venture agreements — require litigation expertise to resolve. We combine our experience in real estate and construction disputes with our strong practical skills and industry knowledge. Our experience in adversarial proceedings includes both trials and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation and binding arbitration.

Our real estate litigation attorneys represent and provide legal counsel to commercial landlords, commercial tenants, property managers, owners, condominium associations, businesses, banks and financial institutions concerning numerous types of real estate disputes arising from the sale, lease, development, use, management or enjoyment of real property, including landlord/tenant disputes and breach of lease agreement litigation, foreclosures, forcible detainers actions and evictions, fraudulent inducement and misrepresentation claims, disputes between joint ventures, and breach of purchase and sale agreement claims.

 

Most commercial real estate litigation involves contractual disputes or alleged breaches concerning commercial lease agreements or agreements to buy or sell commercial real estate, or inadequate or false or misleading representations or disclosures concerning commercial property, or the performance or alleged inadequate performance of a service related to the purchase, sale or lease of commercial real estate. Other less common types of commercial real estate litigation include disputes over land use or title, property development or property management.
