Our team also has substantial experience in appellate practice. If litigation is required to resolve a dispute, we are mindful of the need to build a record at the trial level to support or defend an appeal.
We represent all types of clients, from individuals to publicly traded companies, involved in a variety of general real estate matters including:
- Adverse possession
- Boundary disputes
- Homeowner associations
- IRC Section 1031 like kind exchanges
- Property management
- Private Placement Memorandum for Real Estate Investments

- Slander of title

- Water rights
Our real estate team has extensive experience in title insurance coverage, claims, litigation, and appeals. We routinely represent title insurance companies in direct actions filed by insured owners or lenders. We are frequently retained by title insurance companies to represent lenders or insured owners to initiate curative litigation or defend suits seeking to frustrate the existence or priority of the property interest as insured.
We advise clients on a wide range of commercial real estate transactions. Our services include drafting or reviewing commercial sales contracts, leases, easements, and covenants. We guide our clients through the entire process from negotiating contracts to working with surveyors, environmental experts and title companies, through to closing.
In addition to the services provided by our construction litigation group, our real estate group offers a wide variety of services to developers and construction companies. We represent clients during real estate acquisition, subdivisions, covenants, permitting, and variances. We also advise builders and construction companies on owner and subcontractor contract negotiation and review and liens.
