Much of our real estate practice is focused on representing clients in commercial real estate matters. This includes both transactions and disputes, and ranges from representing architects and property owners in pre-construction contract negotiations to representing landlords and tenants in commercial lease litigation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proceedings.
We represent all parties to commercial real estate sale and acquisition transactions in the Fort Lauderdale area and throughout South Florida. Our clients include property owners, investors, banks and financial institutions, and businesses seeking to acquire office buildings and other commercial properties. With decades of experience representing clients in high-value commercial real estate transactions, our attorneys offer deep insights and vast market knowledge that allow our clients to make strategic and financially-sound decisions during the transaction process.
In addition to representing clients in the sale and acquisition of South Florida real estate, we also routinely advise clients regarding commercial real estate development and construction projects. Our commercial construction practice includes representing all parties involved in the construction process in matters ranging from contract negotiations to land use issues and construction defect litigation.
Our Fort Lauderdale commercial real estate attorneys have extensive experience representing both landlords and tenants in commercial lease transactions. Our services include drafting leases and amendments, negotiating commercial lease documents, and helping our clients deal with matters ranging from lease renewals and extensions to lease transfers and leasing of adjacent plots.
We maintain a broad commercial real estate litigation and ADR practice that includes representing clients in state and federal court as well as before the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and other bodies. In many cases, commercial real estate contracts will require parties to pursue mediation or arbitration as a precursor to (or in lieu of) litigation, and we have experience challenging and enforcing these “mandatory ADR” provisions as well as securing favorable results for our clients through settlement negotiations and arbitration hearings. In litigated disputes, we pursue settlement as an efficient and cost-effective alternative to courtroom litigation whenever possible; however, our attorneys are also deeply experienced in using the litigation process to protect our clients’ legal and financial interests.
Our attorneys are available to represent property owners, tenants, lenders, contractors and other clients in litigation and ADR involving issues such as:
We also routinely assist clients with matters such as challenging property tax assessments and securing insurance coverage for damage to commercial real property.
