Whether you are initiating or defending a lawsuit, or defending a government enforcement action, our litigation attorneys recognize you are concerned both with maximizing results and ensuring your money is well spent. We work with you to determine the appropriate strategy, whether that may be settlement or trial. Unlike some litigators who settle all cases, our litigators have actual trial experience and are willing to go to trial when warranted. We also regularly represent clients in mediations and arbitrations and have extensive experience in appellate litigation.
Real Estate Law
We represent real estate developers, owners, investors, contractors, and occupants with all types of projects, including office buildings, medical buildings, residential and non-residential condominiums, subdivisions, hotels, apartment projects, shopping centers, industrial properties, recreational and sports properties, marinas, business and office parks, mixed-use developments, and brownfield redevelopments. Our clients include both for-profit and non-profit companies of all sizes as well as municipal governments.
Business and Corporate Law
We represent entrepreneurs and business organizations both locally and nationally. We partner with you to help you maneuver through the maze of complex issues associated with all types of business transactions, including formation, purchase, sales, financing, and environmental and regulatory compliance issues.
We help clients build their estates during their lifetime, reduce the tax burden of transferring assets to family members during their lifetime and after death, and provide for an orderly disposition of assets upon death. We also have the experience to assist you in protecting your life’s work, including structuring the succession plan for your business, protecting assets for your family, setting aside money for your children’s education, and ensuring the right people can make medical decisions for you if you are unable.
Health Care Law
Health care is a substantial and growing area of our economy as well as our everyday lives. Our attorneys represent a variety of health care professionals, providers, and entities on matters ranging from rules and regulations, acquisition, ownership and operation of health care businesses, facilities and equipment, to the hiring, retention, and transition of professionals and executives in health care businesses.
Lending and Finance
We understand that borrowers and lenders create long-term relationships, and the loan closing process should enhance, not harm these relationships. We also recognize that when the parties do not properly attend to details, the relationship can be jeopardized. Our clients include business organizations, entrepreneurs, banks, thrifts, insurance companies, finance companies and equity sources, as well as other lenders, borrowers, and investors.
Debtor and Creditor Law
We frequently represent secured creditors, creditors’ committees, unsecured creditors, debtors, and other interested parties in all aspects of creditors’ rights, business bankruptcy and receivership law. In addition, we regularly represent parties in connection with asset sales in bankruptcy and receivership proceedings.
