Our Practice Areas

Real Estate Law

Simply put, a real estate attorney’s job is to help you find a solution to your real estate problem.But while the job description is fairly straightforward, effectively addressing a client’s real estate problem is usually fairly complicated. This is because real estate problems usually draw upon a wide breadth of expertise.Part of this expertise is legal. Real estate involves a variety of practice sub-areas, including landlord-tenant law, land use law, and construction law (among others), each of which rely on discreet knowledge-bases. Moreover, a given client’s problem may also involve contractual, municipal, corporate, and/or constitutional law. A good real estate attorney must have a command of each of these topics.

Landlord-Tenant

When a landlord and tenant sign a lease or rental agreement, that agreement is a contract that assigns certain rights and responsibilities between the parties. As you may know, the terms of a contract are like additional laws that you agree to abide by, and so they are usually enforceable in court. Therefore, as with any contract, when one party fails to perform under the lease, the other party has certain recourses against the non-performing party.In practice, it is usually the landlord that seeks to enforce the contract against an allegedly non-compliant tenant rather than the other way around. However, tenants have rights too—many of which come from statute or common law rather than the provisions of the lease.

Construction Law

Construction projects can be complicated. In most projects, there are many parties with varying roles set out by a network of contractual obligations. If something falls through, it can cost everyone involved a significant amount of money. For this reason, it is important to have legal protections in place long before construction begins.Many legal issues arise throughout the course of construction, and these issues can involve technical language, unique legal relationships, contracts, and more. If you are considering any type of construction, it is important to consult with a law firm that understands the language and principles of construction law and that can represent your interests from start to finish.
