Commercial Real Estate

Grimes Galvano’s real estate attorneys have extensive experience in all aspects of commercial real estate. This practice area complements and overlaps significantly with the Land Use & Project Development Practice Area, as both often affect the same development projects. The firm assists its clients in the negotiation, contract preparation, due diligence investigation and closing on the sale, acquisition, construction financing and development of commercial, industrial, office, retail and mixed use sites and buildings. By way of its long-standing agency relationship with national title insurance companies, the firm’s real estate attorneys issue title commitments and policies in connection with such transactions. If a title defect is discovered during due diligence, our real estate attorneys are adept at clearing those defects, including litigation when necessary. In addition to its highly-experienced commercial real estate attorneys, the firm’s staff includes experienced commercial real estate paralegals that work closely with such attorneys and the clients. Review of shopping center, retail, office and industrial leases as part of a due diligence investigation pre-closing or drafting and negotiation of such leases post-acquisition and development are expertly handled by attorneys in our real estate practice group.
