This type of litigation involves the following types of property: raw land, office buildings, office parks, shopping centers, industrial property, residential and multi-family housing, subdivisions, hotels and franchise operations. We also have substantial experience in environmental litigation including but not limited to mold and asbestos regarding leased and owned property.

We are comfortable representing the mortgagor or the mortgagee, the real estate lender or borrower, the landlord or the tenant, contractors, brokers, title agents and other parties. Our goal is to aggressively pursue the most economically valuable result for the client whether that requires mediation, arbitration, trial or any other means of dispute resolution.
