Real Estate and Construction

Real Estate And Construction

Real Estate is one of the pillars of wealth accumulation in America, and it is also an important avenue for wealth transfers between generations.  In particular, the increase in real estate valuations has been especially dynamic in California for over 200 years.  On the other hand, purchasing, selling, developing, managing, financing and marketing real estate is a very complex and highly regulated business.  It is also an exquisite choreography of multiple players – owners, lenders, government, design professionals, users, neighbors and other stakeholders.  As such, a talented team of experienced lawyers is necessary to help navigate both the obvious, and less obvious, pitfalls of the real estate industry – including lawyers who are experienced in real estate and partnership litigation, when appropriate to aggressively protect the businesses and investments of our clients.
