Comprehensive Commercial Real Estate Services
Completing a real estate project typically involves coordinating the work of dozens, sometimes hundreds of stakeholders – developers, lenders, local governments, trade unions, architects and engineers, to name just a few. The attorneys at DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin, LLP, help clients plan, finance and complete real estate projects as smoothly, expeditiously and cost-effectively as possible.
We approach real estate matters from a business perspective. The attorneys of DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin, LLP, represent individuals, national and local developers, financial institutions, and commercial and industrial firms with large facilities or substantial land holdings.
Our extensive experience, combined with our intimate knowledge of the people, processes, local economies, real estate markets and developers, allows us to render the assistance that helps our clients complete projects. This might include helping a developer work with a municipality or helping a builder work cost-effectively with an architect.
Thorough Insight For Transactions And Property Matters
We assist our clients in every kind of real estate issue, including:
- Contract negotiations for land acquisition and assemblage
- Structuring of ownership and development entities
- Financing of commercial real estate and mortgage transactions
- Drafting and negotiating leases
- Obtaining necessary permits and approvals
- Representing clients before regulatory agencies and municipal planning/zoning boards
Our practice includes frequent and close collaboration with experts in real estate planning, land use and the appraisal of real estate. We have represented scores of public entities in cases involving commercial and/or industrial uses.
These cases often call for a multidisciplinary approach to issues ranging from real estate finance, zoning and planning, and environmental impacts. We use this experience to develop successful strategies for complex cases such as eminent domain proceedings.
