Real estate attorneys represent real estate investment trusts, lenders, developers, landlords, tenants, buyers, and sellers in all aspects of commercial real estate. Real estate attorneys may be generalists, but often will specialize in litigation or transactional matters within the real estate industry.

Major real estate transactions include acquisitions, dispositions, construction and development projects, financing work, commercial leases, and real estate workouts for troubled real estate loans. Real estate matters often involve landlord-tenant, land use or environmental issues.
