Real Estate Litigation

Real Estate Litigation

Attorneys with trial experience handle real estate disputes differently than attorneys without that experience. When presented with a dispute involving real property, our attorneys evaluate the claim with an eye toward how the dispute will eventually appear to a judge or jury. Our trial experience benefits our clients not only in the courtroom, but also in the evaluation of governing documents before the dispute arises.

We can help developers wade through business challenges such as:

  • Enforcement of governing documents within planned developments
  • Declarative and restrictive covenants
  • Real estate claims involving title issues
  • Claims against adjoining property owners
  • Construction litigation
  • Other land use issues
  • Foreclosures and lender liability

Some recent construction and real estate disputes we have handled include:

  • Representation of home builder in resolving and litigating commercial disputes with home buyers, contractors and suppliers.
  • Representation of material supplier in condominium warranty and sound transmission litigation.
  • Representation of steel manufacturer in various construction-related disputes with contractors, subcontractors and property owners.
