Arizona is notorious for real estate boom and bust cycles. In every cycle there are a number of opportunities and risks that require the professional services of an attorney in order to maximize the rewards and minimize the risks. Our attorneys are in tune with the local real estate markets and understand the legal issues that are important to investors, developers and brokers. This understanding allows us to provide cost effective and efficient legal advice on real estate issues both large and small.
When you hire our firm, you receive efficient, cost-effective service. We use our legal skills to close your transactions on time and to resolve your disputes as quickly as possible. We use our knowledge of the local community to solve your practical problems, such as obtaining introductions to lenders, arranging for expedited service from title companies, or working out permit disputes with government officials.
Our real estate practice includes land development. Over the years, we have helped clients buy, develop and sell hundreds of millions of dollars of Arizona real estate including resorts and major subdivisions. We are knowledgeable about all phases of the development process and enjoy excellent relationships with the various government offices overseeing the permit process.
We also do a substantial amount of legal work for clients who own real estate or want to purchase or sell it, including planning tax-free exchanges; forming and marketing syndications; opposing reassessments by taxing authorities; obtaining and analyzing environmental audits; and preparing and enforcing CC&R’s for homeowner associations.
Although much of our practice involves transactions, we also handle real estate disputes involving matters such as partition, foreclosure, quiet title and construction defects.
Our clients include virtually anyone involved in real estate, such as developers, purchasers and sellers, lessors and lessees, homeowners’ associations, owners of land and improved property, lenders, investors, brokers and title companies.
