Our firm’s deep commitment to serving clients in the real estate industry is apparent in almost everything we do. Our practice is rooted in serving developers, contractors, property owners, banks, investors, professionals, and other clients in the real estate industry, and all of our practice areas are pertinent to real estate companies and professionals in some shape or form. We are proud to share responsibility for shaping cities across the South and throughout the United States, and we are equally proud of our work protecting the interests of our real estate industry clients in litigation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings.
Real estate and the law go hand in hand. From acquisition to development, and from leasing to disposition, all aspects of the commercialization of real estate involve legal issues at the local and state levels. In many cases, there can be federal implications as well, and our clients rely on our lawyers to help them make informed and strategic decisions while protecting them against unnecessary liability risks. Lending transactions also involve a multitude of legal issues, and lenders need to be able to rely on experienced legal counsel to protect their interests in financed properties. We have significant experience serving as lender’s counsel for real estate transactions, and we currently represent numerous banks in Alabama and Florida.
