Our attorneys' experience includes a particular emphasis on real estate development, especially multi-use projects — combining residential, retail, parking and public-use areas. We have handled more multi-use projects than most firms in the United States and understand the variety of things that need to come together to complete a project — things that don't always come together easily in a large project. Our depth of experience enables us to advise our clients though the process of developing these projects in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
