Bressler’s Real Estate team specializes in representing both lenders and borrowers in structuring, negotiating and documenting credit arrangements and financing transactions for all types of real property. Over many years of practice, our attorneys have forged a systematic approach to finance that optimizes both experience and problem solving in the areas of loan origination, securitizations, secondary markets and institutional investment. Our clients include lenders, borrowers, issuers, underwriters and investors involved in a broad range of financing transactions.
Bressler’s Real Estate group handles all leasing issues. Our lawyers routinely represent owners and tenants in commercial leasing for a broad array of properties, such as retail establishments, office, industrial, warehouse and other commercial facilities. We consistently succeed in resolving challenges pertaining to, among other things, tenant defaults, build-outs, percentage rent questions, common area maintenance charges, assignments and subleases, use clauses, subordination and non-disturbance agreements, indemnity and public access.
Bressler’s land use capabilities are broad in scope. Our experience ranges from environmental impact analysis and clearances, to development entitlements and permit processing, to land use and environmental litigation. Our attorneys understand what it takes to streamline this process. Our lawyers appear at local planning and zoning board meetings, assist in site planning and sub-division, as well as work cooperatively with government entities on variances to zoning laws.
Our litigators are excellent advocates in the face of a controversy. We are involved in litigation claims that include purchase/sale disputes, leasing issues and ownership entity disagreements. We have resolved matters which involve design and construction issues, environmental problems, insurance coverage, and boundary and easement challenges. Our attorneys are known for their productive mediation, arbitration and conciliation tactics that often serve as the catalyst for potentially swift and advantageous outcomes on behalf of our client.
