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 of the best course of resolution. Our team of attorneys includes negotiators, mediators, arbitrators and trial attorneys, all of whom have experience handling commercial and residential real estate contract disputes, commercial landlord-tenant disputes, title and boundary disputes, as well as disputes among property owners. When necessary, we aggressively defend our clients’ interests in federal and state trial courts as well appellate courts.
Our attorneys are also well-versed in construction and lien and payment disputes, having represented general contractors and subcontractors for many years. We 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. Our experience representing contractors and subcontractors in this arena gives us added insight when representing property owners from the other side of such disputes.
