Real Estate Litigation
Avoid Litigation by Hiring the Right Real Estate Attorney for Your Real Estate Transaction
We are your real estate transaction attorneys and real estate litigation attorneys. The process of buying, selling or developing real property is one of the most complex areas of the law as they involve old common law and modern secured transactions as well as lending regulations. If you are a buyer, seller, land developer, condominium association or anyone who is embroiled in a real estate dispute or would like to take precautions to avoid conflict, our real estate litigation lawyers can work with you to ensure your money and property rights are adequately protected against adverse parties and claims.
On paper, purchasing real estate seems like a relatively straightforward transaction: make an offer, wait for acceptance, draft a contract, settle the deal and exchange the money. However, each step of the purchase process represents a potential point of disagreement or misunderstanding. Our real estate transaction attorneys know how to help you avoid litigation.

It is not uncommon for individuals or businesses to find themselves involved in a legal dispute with another party. Disputes of this nature, such as a breach of contract, typically fall under what is known as civil litigation which entails the use of courts or arbitrators for adjudication. For plaintiffs involved in a civil litigation matter, the objective is to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or to obtain compensation for an injury. On the other hand, defendants in a civil litigation matter want to aggressively protect their rights in opposing the plaintiff’s claim.
Business and Commercial Litigation
Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome in your case. Our civil litigation lawyers, business litigation attorneys and commercial litigation lawyers represent plaintiffs and defendants including individuals, partnerships, shareholders and corporations in the following types of cases: fraud, breach of contract, dissolution or breakup of a business, unfair business practices, business disputes, trade secrets, non-compete covenants, securities matters, breach of warranties and all other types of complex commercial and business litigation matters.
Our civil litigation attorneys work closely with clients to evaluate their potential claims or defenses related to the commercial, professional, employment, and personal dispute that is the subject of litigation. We represent clients before administrative agencies, alternative dispute resolution proceedings such as mediation or arbitration, jury or court trials in state and federal court as well as proceedings before appellate courts. We help clients prepare their cases and counsel them on steps and procedures involved. A skilled civil litigation attorney can help clients leverage their negotiating position to reach a beneficial settlement which may be the most appropriate and economical manner of handing certain cases. However, when a dispute cannot be resolved satisfactorily, taking a case to court may be the best or only option.
When required, our civil litigation attorneys will engage and work closely with experts including investigators, accountants, economic impact analysts, and other relevant professionals.
