Apply Our Experience To Your Commercial Real Estate Issue

Our business and commercial real estate practice includes managing purchase and sale transactions, land development, zoning and land use, commercial leasing, and other matters involving real property on behalf of our clients. When challenges arise, we resolve issues involving everything from broken leases to boundary disputes. In addition, we handle a variety of landlord-tenant issues on behalf of commercial landlords.

Our knowledge of business and finance also allows us to assist our clients when property issues overlap with others, such as environmental regulation. We have extensive experience in the foreclosure of mortgages on behalf of banks, financial institutions, and private lenders. We routinely represent commercial real estate investors in 1031 exchanges, allowing them to buy and sell property while deferring the payment of capital gains taxes.

Ensure Your Residential Transaction Or Dispute Is Handled Right

We represent both sellers and buyers in residential real estate transactions and property disputes. As in our commercial real estate practice, we handle all issues from the preparation of purchase and sale agreements, mortgage issues, ordering title commitments and preparation for closing. We will represent you at the closing and handle any post-closing issues you may be experiencing if you have handled your transaction without a legal review.

We often find that both buyers and sellers in "for sale by owner" (FSBO) transactions have benefited from having an attorney. If you have real estate for sale or are considering buying property in Northern Illinois, don't hesitate to contact us for advice and assistance from an experienced real estate lawyer.

Be Confident When Estate Planning Involves Real Estate Law

The legal issues involved in estate planning, tax and business succession planning overlap considerably with state real property law and federal tax law. For instance, we assist many clients in deferring capital gains taxes by 1031 (Starker) exchanges of real property. This tax planning device allows business owners and investors to buy and sell property without having to pay capital gains taxes.
