Real Estate

Our attorneys handle a variety of real property matters for clients ranging from corporations and commercial lenders to developers and individual homebuyers.

Our attorneys counsel clients in all aspects of the acquisition, ownership, management, and disposition of commercial real estate and residential development. Representative clients include municipalities, real estate developers, property owners, lenders, as well as contractors, designers, investors, managers, tenants and landlords. We are also active in local governmental land use and zoning matters in connection with our municipal land use practice.

We have experience in handling real estate matters in every industry, and we work seamlessly with our Financial Institutions & Lending attorneys on commercial real estate transactions, and with our Commercial Litigation team to protect our clients’ real estate holdings.

We also have extensive experience in the Energy industry, including oil and gas leasing in the Marcellus Shale, riparian rights issues and conservation easements. Our team has handled the acquisition of rights of way and other property interests for the siting of linear projects such as natural gas pipelines and electric transmission lines. We have handled real property and title issues for complex energy transactions involving the transfer of hydroelectric, fossil fuel and nuclear generating facilities.

We draft and negotiate the often-complex documentation accompanying the acquisition and sale, financing, development, and leasing of real property interests. Our attorneys are experienced and proficient in title examination and title insurance claims matters, and we regularly prosecute and defend title disputes.
