Our firm has represented clients in the full range of Commercial Real Estate transactions, including the acquisition and sale of office buildings, industrial properties, warehouses, apartment buildings, shopping centers, and single-purpose facilities. We advise our clients concerning matters that arise from the ownership of Commercial Real Estate, as well as from corporate acquisitions, dispositions and reorganizations that involve the acquisition of shares of corporations owning Real Estate interests. We handle complex transactions, from negotiating and drafting purchase agreements and performing due diligence investigations into property ownership and title matters, to negotiating and settling loan transactions related to acquisitions. We understand the regulatory requirements involved in such matters and can advise on disclosure requirements. We also have extensive experience in ensuring compliance with applicable legislation governing the sale of Real Estate where disclosure statements are required for such sales.
