commercial real estate 


Virtually every large business needs space that is functional, well-run, ideally located and cost-effective. Today's commercial real estate projects are characterized by a myriad of interconnected and interdependent activities—from financing to developing to owning. Environmental standards, such as the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, are evolving to create greener, more environmentally neutral buildings. This adds complexity, but it also presents opportunity.

A host of parties are involved in each commercial real estate project, whether it is an office tower, an entertainment complex, a mixed-use development or an energy facility. Whether you are in the business of real estate or your organization just depends on a sound real estate strategy, it is vital to work with expert legal counsel to understand the full range of risks and opportunities you may face in this incredibly challenging market.
