Commercial Real Estate
Bowie & Jensen’s real estate lawyers provide legal services relating to all aspects of real estate, focusing on acquisition and sales, development and construction activities, entitlements, finance, leasing and work-outs. Our lawyers represent owners, investors, developers, lenders, public/private partnerships, leasing entities and contractors in documenting and enforcing transactions which involve sophisticated real estate projects, including commercial, industrial, retail, multi-family residential, not-for-profit and mixed use developments. With a LEED ® Green Associate in our practice group, we add a sustainable and green aspect to the work we do. Our cross-disciplinary teams provide important overlays of conflict resolution, tax sensitivity and land use planning to the services we perform. We can assist in the formation of partnerships, limited liability companies and other real estate holding entities.
In addition to representing developers of all sizes and real estate investors and lenders, we service numerous clients whose core business may be in other areas, such as healthcare, education, intellectual property, manufacturing and construction. We assist them in traditional, as well as tax-exempt financing, 1031 like-kind exchanges, sale-leasebacks, zoning and permitting approvals, eminent domain matters and lease/ground lease transactions.
Over the years, our lawyers have developed proficiency in representing national, regional and local clients in the real estate aspects of developing, buying, financing and leasing shopping centers, technology and research parks, condominiums, planned communities, urban renewal projects, hotels, mixed use developments and office buildings. We know the techniques best suited to make available the most efficient and effective methods to accomplish the client’s business goals.
We are involved with cutting edge developments in the real estate industry through our Bar Association, Urban Land Institute and U.S. Green Building Council memberships, and apply this industry knowledge and these real estate related connections to our clients’ enterprises.
