Stein Sperling’s Real Estate attorneys assist with a broad range of commercial and private real estate matters, including acquisition, disposition, financing, development, leasing, land use, and litigation. In consultation with our clients, we provide strategic advice to help achieve their goals.
Whether our client is a buyer, seller, investor or lessee, we help develop the appropriate financial structures crucial to the success of their real estate transactions and business operations. This includes determining the ideal structure of the ownership entities and evaluating the related tax strategies including tax-deferred 1031 Exchanges.
In addition to transaction documents, we negotiate and prepare letters of intent, financial commitment letters, limited liability company and ownership agreements, joint venture and development agreements, as well as other ancillary agreements. As part of the financing process, we assist clients with loan origination, loan purchase and sale, restructuring and workout as they pertain to each client’s situation and needs.
Stein Sperling counsels landlords and tenants with regard to their commercial leasing matters including structuring and negotiating lease agreements to protect their interests as either Landlord or Tenant. When the termination of a lease is required, we represent tenants through negotiations with their landlords, lenders and other interested third parties, whether single-asset or large-portfolio workouts.
Our attorneys handle matters related to construction contracts and contract disputes and collections, ensuring our clients understand their legal rights to collect payments owed to them for labor, equipment or materials. As part of this process, we keep our clients informed of important statutory deadlines affecting their rights to collect payments or assert claims against adverse parties in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia courts.
Although Stein Sperling works with clients to limit their exposure to legal and financial liabilities, when controversies arise, we advise buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders, developers, landlords and tenants on the best course of resolution. When necessary, we aggressively defend our clients’ interests in court.
