We also work with developers and real estate management companies to draft leases, management agreements and parking agreements, and negotiate with tenants. We are experienced in assisting with any type of property, from office, retail and restaurant space, to warehouse, storage, industrial space, shopping centers or parking facility.
Our firm can negotiate improvements and build-outs, and we handle disputes relating to construction and repairs by helping to determine who is responsible for paying those costs.
For any commercial lease or property management dispute, our skilled litigation team is available to represent you.

Our litigation team will handle any dispute between commercial tenants and landlords, developers or property managers, and we will represent you in any litigation involving real estate brokers and agents.
Construction Matters & Mechanic’s Liens

Our attorneys will work with owners, tenants and contractors in billing and contract disputes and to place or clear mechanics liens.

Our real estate practice group will assist you in any commercial or residential real estate development project.

Boundary Disputes & Adverse Possession
Should neighboring construction, barriers, fences or usage of your property become a dispute between property owners, then you may retain our firm to advise you and demand that the activity ends. We represent clients with simple and complex property line disputes. If you have recently discovered that a neighbor’s building or improvement sits on your property, you should seek representation before the neighbor acquires that portion of your property through adverse possession.
