Experienced Real Estate And Business Attorney

Representation For Commercial Real Estate Disputes

Our commercial real estate attorneys at Simkin & Associates, Inc., commonly represent or litigate on behalf of property owners, real estate developers, secured lenders, landlords, tenants and others such as borrowers or bondholders.

Whether claims arise from purchase or sale agreements, options to buy, post-closing adjustments to specific performance and escrow issues, rescission or claims of fraud, or breaches of contract, our commercial real estate litigation attorneys will advise you on the best course of action. This could include negotiation of settlement terms, commercial contract dispute resolution or arbitration, or the prosecution of a case in the courts.

We have experience in the financial aspects of commercial real estate from secured loans to foreclosure proceedings, enforcement of guarantees, disbursement claims, escrow matters, and claims of bad faith or issues pertaining to lender liability.

Experience With Complex Financial Transactions

Our commercial litigation team has a strong track record of representation in commercial agreements involving multiple loan participants, co-ownership situations and occasions involving multiple creditors or bondholders.

We have over 30 years of hands-on experience in commercial financial issues arising from secured loans, receivership, enforcement guarantees, public financing, private-public partnerships relating to low-income housing, government-supported projects and more.

On the business side, we are very adept in management and operating contracts involving the following:

  • Apartments and condominiums
  • Hotels, motels and resort properties
  • Malls, strip malls and shopping centers
  • Business parks and high-rises
  • Storage facilities, commercial warehouses and commercial docks and shipping centers
  • Public property leases and temporary leases
  • Government housing and commercial leases and government-supported or financed properties and projects
  • Reclassification of private to commercial property and subsequent sale, leasing or construction

This includes a deep knowledge of the varied business structures, such as limited liability companies, corporations, partnerships and other entities, and the common issues and disputes arriving thereof, including shareholder equity disputes, participation rights and duties, corporate dissolution matters, liquidation and instances of a partner or shareholder being “squeezed out” as well as fraud, conversion and other matters.

Decades Of Experience Resolving Real Estate Problems

Our commercial real estate contract and financial knowledge also covers such elements as title matters relating to bona fide encumbrancers or purchasers as well as liens and lien holders, including mechanics and contractors, easement rights, etc.

We also advise on cases involving eminent domain disputes, focusing on litigation surrounding right to take, urban redevelopment, relocation, restitution, fair market value and historical properties. We have extensive knowledge and a history of success in matters dealing with federal, state and local governments, codes and statutes.

Litigation is a last resort as a strong effort for pursuing settlement. Our commercial real estate attorneys are adept negotiators of settlements. They know the applicable statutes and case law. Such knowledge allows us to ascertain areas of breach to support a valid claim and how to leverage such to inspire potential defendants to settle to the satisfaction of our clients, thus forgoing the immense time and expense inherent in defending a claim in the courts.
