COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
We provide strategic counsel for developers, property owners and units of government in all types of commercial real estate transactions, including acquisition, disposition, financing and leasing of commercial real estate. We guide our clients through the entire process, negotiating on their behalf, maximizing the available profit and tax advantages, while balancing their objectives regarding the operating concerns of entities which hold title to real estate.
Our attorneys also interpret, negotiate, draft and secure easements, both permanent and temporary, for government entity clients and private clients for a myriad of purposes. The knowledge base of our attorneys extends to issues that arise when a government entity either grants an easement or is the party benefitting from the easement. In fact, we recently finalized obtaining several easements necessary for a $20 million waterworks project
We serve as an agent of Chicago Title Insurance Company, which offers a complete array of real estate title services.

In one example of our breadth of experience, we assisted a prominent developer’s recent purchase of a $10 million office parcel in suburban Cook County. Our work didn’t stop with just the purchase, we assisted in the rezoning of that parcel to accommodate industrial uses, borrowing for the construction of an industrial building, negotiation with the municipality in the permitting process, and the leasing of the site to an industrial end user.
