After years of economic uncertainty, the real estate industry has gone through a period of disruption and continues to present a unique set of challenges, primarily because of the continually evolving nature of the industry. The Polsinelli Real Estate Litigation practice anticipates the changes presented by shifting client needs, and partners closely with them to help them adapt and thrive. Our group uses its nationwide presence and specialized knowledge of local markets not only to efficiently litigate real estate disputes, but also to advise clients preemptively on how to avoid disputes and reduce litigation risk.

We regularly advise clients on drafting and interpreting leases, guarantees, purchase and sale contracts, development agreements, and a variety of other related types of contracts. We also work with extensively with attorneys in related practice groups at the firm, including real estate development, construction, environmental, and real estate finance and lending, to ensure we offer our clients a comprehensive perspective to the issues they are facing. This cross-disciplinary approach allows us to provide clients advice during any phase of a real estate project.
