From loans, land procurement, development, zoning and environmental matters to securing permits, condemnation and final construction, Smith Anderson real estate and construction attorneys offer clients the savvy, know-how and deep bench of support to bring major projects to fruition. Our team of lawyers have extensive experience within the real estate and construction industry counseling owners, investors, lenders, sureties, developers, design professionals, contractors, construction companies, landlords and tenants through every stage of a project – from project concept and development to completion.
Smith Anderson has advised on significant real estate projects – both public and private projects – in more than 25 U.S. states, the U.K., Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Middle East, and Africa. Our group’s project portfolio includes major mixed-use, office, infrastructure, manufacturing, multi-family, retail, condominium, natural resource and public utility projects.
If things go sideways, as they sometimes do in complicated matters, our attorneys offer a guiding hand in resolving real estate and construction disputes and assist in contracting, risk identification and evaluation, risk avoidance, and pre-litigation strategies. And if worse comes to worse, we lead clients through every step of the litigation process, whether in mediation, arbitration or in a courtroom, to ensure the most optimal outcome.
We regularly work together across multiple real estate-related practice areas: Land Use and Zoning; Commercial Real Estate; Construction and Infrastructure; Environmental and OSHA; Real Estate and Construction Litigation; Energy and Renewable Energy; and Right-of-Way Acquisition and Condemnation.
When it comes to real estate and construction, there isn’t anything Smith Anderson attorneys can’t assist with.
