Real Estate & Development

We understand the value of a firm with relationships and knowledge of the local real estate landscape, which is why we work closely with corporate and municipal groups to bring sound, practical advice to every client.

Led by Steven Sheppard, our real estate and development group advises clients on development, commercial leasing, and financing matters. We are proud to serve purchasers, vendors, landlords, tenants, banks, non-traditional lending institutions, and developers.

With experience in complex transactions for commercial properties, multi-residential properties, and vacant land transfers, our firm provides effective advice regarding all forms of development agreements, including: complex joint venture agreements, co-tenancy agreements, and cost sharing agreements. We also provide regular advice to developers and land owners regarding development and planning matters.
