We protect the private property rights of owners of real estate and other stakeholders. We protect those rights by obtaining land use approvals, enforcing development rights, and litigating land use disputes with government agencies or neighboring owners, if necessary. We fight to obtain “just compensation” for our clients if the government takes their property by eminent domain, or imposes overly harsh regulations. We reduce our client’s real estate taxes when local assessors try to set “fair market values” that are far too high.  And, we enforce the legal rights and remedies of every real estate stakeholder, including banks and other lienholders, buyers and sellers of real estate, and landlords and tenants.


We offer extensive experience resolving real estate disputes through negotiation, mediation, arbitration or litigation. We have successfully resolved a full range of real estate issues including landlord-tenant disputes, lease negotiation, enforcement, termination, eviction and collection; mortgage, contract-for-deed and mechanic’s lien foreclosures; construction disputes; purchase agreement and option agreement disputes; title clearance; title insurance coverage; and land use matters.

In addition, our real estate litigators have extensive experience with condemnation and eminent domain matters. We have represented property owners, businesses and public agencies throughout the region in all facets of eminent domain issues affecting their properties, ranging in value from tens of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars.

Finally, our real estate litigators enforce the rights of financial institutions with security interests in real estate. Our representation of financial institutions extends to lenders’ participation agreements, which often contribute to large commercial real estate lending. Commercial real estate litigation often requires establishing and managing receiverships during litigation. In recent years, our team has administered receivership matters for office buildings, hotels, restaurants, apartment complexes, residential development and manufacturing enterprises.
