Real Estate Law
Our real estate attorneys are involved in all aspects of the real estate industry through representation of developers, purchasers, investors, tenants and lenders in connection with the acquisition, development, operation, leasing and sale of all types of properties. Our work has included numerous major transactions involving office buildings, retail centers, hotels, resorts, single family and multifamily residential developments, mixed-use developments, condominium projects and timeshare developments. Attorneys on the real estate team also represent banks, opportunity funds, pension plan advisors and other financial institutions involved with construction and permanent financings, sale/leasebacks and similar financing transactions.
In recent years, the nature of the real estate industry and the sources of capital for real estate transactions have changed significantly. Gardere’s real estate practice group has been at the forefront of these changes, playing major roles in portfolio acquisitions, dispositions and financings throughout North America. Our practice is transaction-oriented, and our lawyers are trained to be problem solvers and "deal makers," not deal breakers. At Gardere, our attorneys take pride in finding creative and cost-effective solutions to our clients' complex problems in the areas of real estate and real estate finance.
A significant part of our real estate practice involves the traditional representation of developers, lenders, equity investors, major corporate tenants/users, owners, contractors, architects, consultants and brokers in connection with a wide range of projects and issues. Our real estate lawyers counsel large and small clients ranging from entrepreneurial local and national development firms and investors to money center financial institutions, pension funds and their advisors, publicly traded real estate investment trusts and Fortune 500® companies. We provide a full range of legal services in connection with all real estate related aspects of our clients' business including:
Although the Firm's offices are located in the Southwest, our real estate practice has a broader geographic scope and includes work for domestic and foreign clients on transactions and projects throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean, including a significant number of recognizable downtown and suburban developments.
Several of our attorneys have developed unique skills in specific areas of the law, such as the formation of complex partnerships, joint ventures, limited liability companies, tax exempt title holding companies and other vehicles for the ownership of, or investment in, real property, the development of specialized resort and entertainment facilities such as concert venues, hotels and golf courses, and residential lot development and related public financing via municipal utility districts.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
