Our counsel includes matters with respect to purchasing and selling real estate and construction, financing, development, management, and the operation of commercial, industrial, and residential projects; the public and private offering of various types of real estate securities; securitized lending transactions; leasing on behalf of landlords and tenants; and real estate restructurings on behalf of lenders and borrowers.
We regularly appear before planning and zoning boards on behalf of our real estate clients. Our involvement within the local community allows us to provide key insight to our clients in a complex area of the law.
Our real estate attorneys also are involved in more traditional aspects of real estate law, including real estate loans, construction and development loans, as well as interest rate swaps, letters of credit, deferred (Section 1031) tax exchanges and convertible mortgages. In addition, we represent local, regional and national real estate developers, investors, landlords, tenants, and lenders in numerous development projects, including office buildings, shopping centers and hotels.
The capabilities of our real estate attorneys are complimented by working with attorneys in other practice areas within Smith Hurst. Our real estate attorneys collaborate with our taxation attorneys, estate planning attorneys, and corporate finance attorneys to insure our clients receive well-rounded advice on issues relevant to the active real estate market.
