Real Estate Law

From negotiation of office leases for downtown high rises, to financing of wind farms along Altamont Pass, to game changing infill development, to documentation of agricultural purchase and sale transactions in the Central Valley and throughout California — and to everything in between — we have handled countless sophisticated and fascinating projects that are part of the fabric of our region and almost every other region in California and beyond.  In doing so, we consistently and insightfully strive to understand each client’s business goals and to assist them in meeting those goals by providing business counsel in an efficient, deal point focused, and cost-effective manner.  As a result, our peers throughout the commercial real estate industry recognize us as skilled negotiators, “deal” lawyers, and “closers” and often seek us out for our unmatched creativity, industry knowledge, and legal sophistication when others have given up and say it can’t be done.  We find a way to close the deal.

The depth of our practice encompasses every aspect of commercial property transactions, including, but by no means limited to, all manner of acquisitions, dispositions, option agreements, reciprocal easements, conservation easements, mortgage origination and workouts in contexts ranging from CMBS conduit loans to complex seller carry backs, retail, office, industrial and agricultural leasing and lease workouts, all manner of resourcefully structured and custom drafted agreements necessary to creatively meet industry and deal specific needs, complex title work, listing agreement, tenancy in common agreements, CC&Rs, real property tax appeals, and everything in between.
