Real Estate Law
Real estate is an industry built on relationships. It’s all about who you know. A cornerstone of the firm since our formation in 1970, our attorneys are well-connected and well-versed in every area of real estate law. We represent developers, buyers, sellers, landlords, property managers, brokers, tenants, institutional investors, syndicators and others in transactions across the United States. We also frequently serve as local counsel for colleagues in other states who are closing deals in Illinois and California.
No business operates in a vacuum. This is particularly true when it comes to real estate transactions, where deals are negotiated within a complex system of legal, financial, regulatory and business obligations, and the benefits of maintaining the right relationships and connections can be immeasurable.
We are part of an extensive network of real estate professionals throughout the Midwest and across the country, including agents, associations, brokers, lenders, institutional investors, management companies, title companies, zoning boards, and other individuals and organizations. We strive to provide our clients with the connections they need to achieve their goals – quickly and effectively.
