Business & Real Estate Litigation

Business & Real Estate Litigation

Clients hire us to litigate and cases involving real estate and other business contract disputes, whether in state court, federal court, arbitration, or even US bankruptcy court (where we have experience protecting lien rights and claimant priorities against debtors).  We have successfully litigated disputes over lien rights, property boundaries, eminent domain, indemnification, and interference with contract.

Our real estate expertise also includes litigation related to water rights and property encumbrances, as well as real estate issues arising out of construction and relating to neighboring property subsidence and trespass issues.  We have also represented property owner clients against municipalities and attempted enforcement of improper zoning restrictions.
