Real Estate Transactions

Our Utah real estate transaction attorneys have represented many of the largest private and public entities in a wide range of real estate matters

Businesses need real property from which to operate.  Real property includes land, buildings (offices, warehouses, parking structures), and anything affixed to the land.

Our Salt Lake City and St. George, Utah Real Estate transactional attorneys, have represented many of the largest private and public entities in Utah in a wide range of transactions.  When advising clients on whether to buy, build, or lease real estate, we help clients consider their short- and long-term business objectives and the legal aspects of these possibilities.

Buying, Selling, Development, and Leasing

For businesses interested in buying or selling real property, we offer experience in all aspects of this process, including financing.

For businesses that want to develop real property for their own use, we assist in land acquisition, ascertaining requirements for development, negotiating approval processes with government entities, assuring compliance with building codes, securing financing, and drafting construction contracts.

For businesses wanting to lease real property, we represent owners and tenants in all lease transactions, including ground leases, commercial leases, and sale/leasebacks.

Representing Clients in Real Estate Disputes

Our experienced real estate, construction, and commercial litigation lawyers provide a solid and vigorous defense when disputes arise over purchase, construction, or lease transactions.

In a dispute, we rely upon years of experience developing strategies to seek an acceptable negotiated resolution.  In some instances, mediation or private arbitration can be used to help resolve a dispute relatively quickly and at much less expense than a trial.

If litigation or a trial are inevitable, we work with clients to develop a strategic litigation approach around their objectives and work tirelessly in seeking the outcome desired.
