Real Estate

Our real estate attorneys provide innovative and effective solutions to the full range of real estate issues facing our clients.

We understand and respond to our clients' need to receive prompt, cost-effective, practical advice. We serve not only the real estate development and investment community, but also handle the corporate facilities and other real estate needs of our entrepreneurial and traditional business clients.

Growing beyond our Orange County roots, the firm's real estate practice has expanded to include transactions throughout the United States and abroad, providing service in the following areas:

Corporate Real Estate
We understand the importance of meeting the demanding and time-sensitive real estate needs of businesses, including those that are expanding, consolidating, relocating, merging, or being acquired. Our attorneys assist these companies with their real estate law needs, providing legal oversight in such matters as leasing, property acquisition, financings, letters of credit, partnerships, limited liability companies, public offerings, and mergers and acquisitions.

Through close interaction with our corporate attorneys, we are uniquely qualified to identify and manage the real estate needs of companies throughout their life cycle, from startup to public company.

Traditional Real Estate Transactions
Our traditional real estate practice involves the representation of retail, industrial, office and residential developers, landlords and tenants in all aspects of real property acquisition, financing, development, construction, leasing, management, syndication, exchange, and disposition.

The firm has developed specialized expertise in matters related to shopping center development, including site acquisition, disposition, regulatory approvals, joint ventures, finance, leasing, operations, reciprocal access and easement agreements, CC&Rs, and tenant disputes.

We also have specialized expertise in transactions involving municipal bond-financed projects, as well as medical office, assisted living and other healthcare-related projects.

We represent both lenders and borrowers in real property secured lending, including construction, permanent and mezzanine financing, loan participations, securitized debt, loan assumptions, workouts, foreclosures, and receiverships.
