Commercial and Residential Leasing
Our attorneys are adept at both the commercial and residential aspects of real estate leasing law. We will prepare or review your lease, carefully explain the contents, and assist in the negotiations of its terms. We have handled numerous commercial and residential leasing transactions for landlords, developers, and tenants.
Construction and Lien Law
Our attorneys have broad experience in construction and lien law, from the planning stage through completion and, when needed, dispute resolution. We have represented homebuilders, developers, homeowners, condominium developers, general contractors, architects, engineers, surveyors, construction managers, financial institutions, investors, landlords and tenants, municipalities, and title, bond and liability insurers.
Construction Disputes and Claims
When a construction project does not go according to plan, claims are likely. Our attorneys have represented all parties in the construction arena, including architects, engineers, surveyors, construction managers, general contractors and subcontractors, in claims arising out of the construction of residences, commercial buildings, roadways, bridges, landfills, sanitary sewers, waterlines and public water supply systems.
Our attorneys have considerable experience representing clients in connection with all types of contract disputes, written or verbal. If you think you have a contract and feel the other party has not lived up to their end of the deal, we will help you to determine whether a contract exists and whether or not it is capable of enforcement.
Our attorneys have experience in many aspects of environmental law: from the issues raised during the handling of hazardous materials to the resolution of natural resource problems. These services include helping buyers and sellers of property avoid environmental liabilities through the use and analysis of Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments. We also have experience in the preservation of wetlands, conservation easements, parklands and other dedicated uses.
Our attorneys have experience handling various aspects of landlord/tenant relationships—both residential and commercial. From drafting and advising on leases, renting policies, tenant notices, counseling landlords as tenant issues arise, and handling eviction proceedings and litigation. We can be a resource for both landlords and tenants alike.
Premises liability law is the body of law which makes the person who is in possession of land or premises responsible for certain injuries suffered by persons who are present on the premises. A premises owner faced with a lawsuit should notify his insurance carrier. Our attorneys have successfully defended premises owners against such claims for years.
Our attorneys represent owners, builders, contractors, developers, landlords, and tenants in all types of real estate transactions, whether residential, commercial, industrial, retail, or office, and as to all types of administrative matters, including building and fire code compliance matters.

Our attorneys represent clients in matters of rezoning, planned unit developments, conditional use permits, zoning variances, and other growth management permit and development order issues.
